Except for the fact that it is NOT DESIGNED for  it. Guying it will only put 
additional tension on all of the cables -  shortening the service life and 
decreasing its safety factor significantly.

See comments above. Please keep in mind  that you must observe the LXC Prime 
Directive to "DO what the manufacturer  says" in all cases.
