My thinking here is that because the arms of the anchor are not equal; the lower (closer to the master point) the more force that lower piece of pro is going to be subjected to

You know that's only true if all the legs of the anchor are equally tensioned. If using clove hitches you could adjust the bomber piece to have more tension on it. You could spend a lot of time fussing with it, or you could just tie your pieces together the best you can and rely on the redundancy of three pieces.

Edit.
Redlude beat me to the point while I was interrupted on the phone.
