Most harbors I have visited that have moorings use some variation of a single point mooring that allows boat to swing 360 degrees. All of the coves on Catalina Island and now King Harbor on the mainland have moorings which provide ties for bow and stern which prevent the boat from swinging. Is there a standard term for this style of two point mooring? Drawing from http://www.visitcatalinaisland.com/camping-boating/two-harbors-boating/mooring-information:

I always thought they made a lot of sense, and am curious why I have never seen that arrangement elsewhere

I don't think they have a specific term for it . In Avalon you tie up bow out . At the Isthmus all but just a few are bow in . This shot is the Isthmus with bow out , doesn't look to crowded .
This next shot is Avalon with bow out .

If the mooring fields get to crowded there are many places to anchor .
