the problem here is twist. If you clip locking biners directly into the rings/U-bolts, your locking biners will want to sit flat against the rock. A weighted rope running through the two biners will try to twist them 90 degrees so you have a torque/twist applied on your locking biners which is non-ideal.

In the other solutions the sling and/or quickdraws provide the required 90 degree twist.
