I started an off list discussion with Peter about this. I did almost exactly what he proposed only 6-8 weeks ago, except I used a C3SS and the total stack height is lower. In my case, I looked at adding the 40m kit on the c3ss, but the increased turning radius would have been an issue (ask W2GD how close I am to the property lines)
When it came time to decide parallel to the boom, or parallel to the elements, we went with "rule #1" (do what the Mfg says), and we called Force 12. They said "5-10 ft between antennas? Put the elements in parallel", so we did
System has been working FB, so I can't complain
