I think what you describe violates the principal that you taper the bury so that there is not a stress riser. That riser will not only be the
place of failure, but more seriously if the rope is heavily loaded and stressed repeatedly -- thousands of cycles, to be truthful-- the point of premature
failure and at a lower
load. You are wearing out the rope at one particular point with an abrupt difference of strength at one point. (Or line to be correct.)
Here's an alternative eye splice from a trustworthy and major cordage maker:
You'll have to count braids to see if it implies a shorter bury and weave.
