...the fig.8 / constrictor forms won't carry as much line tension through their turns, to stabilize and pass force from the one leg of the line to the next, as much as 2 double nooses/barrels

   Quite possible. We just do not know. And we are not going to learn anything by just talking... We need experimental evidence, tests. Knot tyers are in abundance, but knot testers is a rare endangered species nowadays...
This is not a knot.

Another likely problem with this end-2-end joiner is that it can
become imbalanced, with one end getting the jump (so to speak)
on the other, achieving straightened, less-force-impeded passage
to it turn & nip of the opposite end, which thereby aggravates
the imbalance (impeding the reciprocal nipping that would
ameliorate its own delivered force to its nip).  With ropes of
the same nature (e.g., tying a single line into a circular sling),
the matter is likely addressable by careful setting; but with
ropes of differing natures, the situation is problematic.

   A lanyard bend, based on the Constrictor. (See the attached picture). The same knot can serve as a midspan, mid-line bend (1).
