Maxijacket isn't exactly a cheap option at over $50/qt.

The lockstitch, as said above, is just for when the line is not loaded, they provide zero strength. After a line has been loaded and used for some time, the outter core compresses the inner, and creates a texture of the inner core, further increasing friction.

If you're worried about it, just re-stitch it after 8 years. But most of us have other projects to work on instead of worrying about something that perhaps, maybe, might be an issue.
