Bridged Traveler

My boat has an inverted vee type mainsheet system with two blocks mounted on the cabin top, roughly at each corner of the companionway. Normally putting a traveler track in place of this would be no big deal but I've got a fiberglass panel over the deck top to allow forward running lines to be hidden. There are two 12cm holes molded into this cover to allow the mainsheet blocks to be mounted directly through the actual deck glass. I'm wondering if anyone has experience with a bridged main traveler track like what is sometimes done with a self tacking jib? I could mount the two legs of the track through the existing holes in the panel. I'd just have to make sure it's sized correctly for the loads based on my sailplan.
