It might be the other way around.
I have seen that kind of rebar carrying long before Torklift start making camper ties.

Pure rodbuster ingenuity right there!

Must be smarter than the crew that just tied the first abutment footing on one of my jobs. 24' tall full height #11 and #6 wall dowels. Zero diagonal racking and almost zero ties on the tails. One bump on the end and 20,000lbs of bar went down like dominos!
Close call, noone was under it, no injuries and was about 2 minutes before hte first truck started dumping concrete!

What is the real danger, compared to what most small contractors do? If it was me, I would probably put a strap in center to reduce sag, but not likely to cause harm.
