Hobie 16 - Foot Loops - Class Legal?

We're currently re-carpetting the side of our Hobie 16 and I wondered about fitting a foot loop on either side so that I (the crew) can keep my footing when we get side swiped by waves from motor boats. I think the cruisers and dhows do it deliberately when we're both out on the wire.

My reflexes are getting better so we've only had a few pitch pole incidents! However, now is the time to think about it as we're doing a spot of maintenance. What do you think? Class legal or not?
