The only odd thing about the double-ended mainsheet theory is that the sketch in the original post also shows a traditional mainsheet set up on a traveler.

I believe the lines aren't shown all that clearly on the plan.
What can appear to be a single main sheet on the traveler is a part of the double ended system.
What can appear to be a split back stay going to the starboard side is actually the starboard part of the main sheet going to a block, same as the port side.

Yes, and that's what I use now. Maybe it just came equipped for both.

Re: Rigging question - What's this for?

Is it a double block on the traveler? Maybe there are two lines, each of them symmetrical and attached to the boom through the block. Adjusting the tension on both lines would allow control of the sheeting angle and traveler position. That notion would be supported by the fact that the traveler does not seem to have any way to lock the car.

Although I can see problems from that system due to the fact that the both lines need to be attended to to sheet out.

I think the block is for the spinnaker sheet. The diagram just shows how it can be used to secure the boom when the sails are down.

Re: Rigging question - What's this for?

This may help. I have other set ups, from the end of the boom.

Re: Rigging question - What's this for?

On my boat the blocks could be used for turning the topsail yard braces. This may not be applicable to your vessel.
