We've had following seas break over the dinghy, let alone the scoop, without any adverse concern for the boat, cockpit, etc. Actually, filling the dink with water is a concern for weight on the davits, but that has nothing to do with the transom design.
The only negative that I would offer, is that the stern has a tendancy to slap on the water, especially if there are waves from the rear at an anchorage or dock. That can make it hard to sleep in some conditions. This doesn't happen often.

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.
