Have you done anything like that?
I assume you haven't had any trouble.
I'm sure it would be fine I just end up thinking about it all the time.
In all my strapping bikes and quads to trailers, trucks and racks, I have never had any strap problems. Nor have I ever lost a shock seal on anything.
When tie downs are starting to look a little ratty, replace them......
