Traches,

I am missing your point...the first anchor pictured looks like a simple "sliding X" configuration. The second looks like a "quad." Both are completely standard...

Edit: On second glance, it looks like you are also concerned about shock loading in each of these situations. While none should fail outright if one of the bolts was to become compromised, "limiter" knots on the first case wouldn't be a bad idea. The quad has limiter knots by design, which would reduce the shock load in the case of bolt failure.
