It's not heinously unsafe or anything, but it doesn't offer any advantages that I can see over a tied off cordalette. Which begs the question... Why do it?

The main advantage of this setup is that it's possible to do with quite short slings. In my example anchor four pieces were tied off with a 120cm sling. The same setup with cordalette would have required about double length of sling. The tradeoff seems to be the strength of the system as tenchdigger pointed out.
