my only reservations are those big cleats waiting to snag the mainsheet

The main never gets near the cleats, that is why it is such a perfect location IMHO. The main is usually at the floor just aft of the CB case and also crosses over the aft buoyancy tank, well aft of the cleats. I can’t think of any maneuver that would bring the main close to those cleats.
