In reply to:
slings also tend to be more stable than a wire attachment due to the fact that if the sling is in contact with the rock it can accommodate irregularities in the surface of the rock that may cause a hard attachment point (ie. cable) to actually lever the placement off the rock.

That there is one of the best things I have read on here in ages. Very true and well said. Cabled hooks are just not as forgiving or stable as ones slung with webbing, especially if the webbing is going to contact the wall. As far as your knot coming undone, c'mon.... check your knots and tie them tight.
