What's wrong with this anchor?

For anyone kind enough to offer some feedback:

I've never seen an anchor built this way (in this case it's set up to belay a second from above), but I couldn't put my finger on why it would be wrong/bad/insufficient. I understand that cordalette/sling/etc to build a master point is standard, but I'm curious as to the reasoning for why this method would not work.

What specifically about this is incorrect? Any input appreciated, particularly explanation.

(I posted this from an iPhone, so my apologies if this ends up formatted strangely).
