I'm a pretty big fan of using shade cloth as a stressed member. A neat discovery this year was that a freeform tent can have structural redundancy. One of the skinny paracord guy lines wore through due to a truckers hitch, but the shade just readjusted to compensate. The structure stayed up and barely flinched.
Redundant designs are great. Ask yourself what would happen if any one part failed? One way of doing structural redundancy is the 'belt and suspenders' approach where you pile on more backup supports. But I prefer an approach where redundancy is inherent to the materials and the design. Think 'safe to fail' rather than failsafe.
In my camp's case, some things went wrong. One guy line broke (due to abrasion), one support pole got overenthusiastically stabbed through the shade cloth, the lightweight central pole fell over (because it was too short and so wasn't under enough compression), and the wind blew hard as usual.
With other structures any one of these could be a disaster. The falling pole was just a 2x2 stick with a rubber innertube turban so we barely noticed when it fell over. In the case of the freeform tent, the stretchy shade fabric is the principal bracing structure, and the windbreak, and the wall, and the roof, and it didn't tear much because it's knitted not woven. It's inherently redundant
Plus it was cheap.
There is redundancy inherent to the distribution of anchors. Because the fabric is lightweight it doesn't need super strong rope and it can't take grommets. So we didn't need lots of rope, we used short lengths of cord. The cord ties to the fabric around a tennis ball. This let us readjust cord positioning on the fly. The stretchiness of the fabric automatically balanced the load between the anchor points. And we used lag bolts so nobody stepped on rebar.
So rather than being failsafe our tent was safe to fail. I love it.
