Yeah, there were 4 ways I thought of that I mention in the video with which you can secure the pole to the tarp at the ridgeline -
1. Attach a loop to a continuous tarp ridgeline and secure the pole to that (this is what I am currently doing).
2. Run a non-structural line from both ends of the tarp ridgeline and attach a loop to that and secure the pole to that (this is what you mention).
3. Sew ribbon at the ridgeline of the tarp and secure the pole to that (I don't like this as much as you have to permanently alter the tarp).
4. Attach a Grip Clip at the ridgeline of the tarp and secure the pole to that.
There's probably more ways to skin this cat but I couldn't think of any.

I have a Webb with single center pole mod from zq. I really like the structure it provides, especially in high winds.
Overall great creative idea and well spoken instructional video.
I don't have any pics, but I think the limiting factors on fully closing the doors on your SF when hung over a WBRR are the suspension triangles, not the hammock itself.
has some pics describing what I'm talking about.
As you can see, the doors would close fine. It's the suspension triangles that get in the way. However, I don't think any tarp on the market would have a ridgeline long enough to enable its doors to fully close around the suspension triangles (14.5 feet from suspension triangle to suspension triangle would warrant a tarp with a 15 foot ridgeline
You can still get them closed pretty well though, just not all the way as demonstrated in the pics in the above thread.
