If that is the case, could you put a second grommet on the forward end of the jig boom and let the cable tie be a little looser and allow it to travel between the two grommets giving you the same benefit?
Or am I just all wet?

Not sure I understand your question? Are you saying to put another sliding gromment ahead of the "A" sticker on the jib boom to let the connection float between the two gromments?

As you can see from the photos of the Super Nirvana project, Dennis has done what Templus was suggesting, only in a more refined way.

I am easily confused and am just wondering what benifit we'd get from doing that?
