Thinking out loud here...I doubt that the compression will be a problem. Every knot, constrictor and piece of hardware it's looped around severely compresses amsteel. We usually don't see/notice/think about it.
In this use, the amsteel is not even compressed over a sharp angle as happens with a lot of hardware.
No/little abrasion is taking place to cause damage over the long term.
I think this use is good to go as far a potential damage to the amsteel is concerned.
