It will work but you should not clip metal with the carabiners that is dedicated for the rope. The carabiners might get nicked and damage the rope in the future.

no its fine ... its ROUNDED biner on ROUNDED biner and you arent taking lead whippers on em

people do it all the time ... many guides use a masterpoint carabiner which the client clip themslves to ... the DMM Boa was basically built for that purpose

Solid and very useful answers. Thanks to everyone, very helpful. :-)

and WRONG ...

the biners wont get "damaged" any more than any other configuration ... nor will they "twist" out as shown, any more than a rope will twist out of 2 opposed biners that are acceptable for TR anchors ...

to the OP ... the anchor is absolutely and utterly fine as shown ... everyone does things differently, doesnt mean its "unsafe"
