From an unbalanced/balanced rig perspective, putting the squares on the same servo as the jibs would be desirable. They are both sails located forward of the CLR, so slackening or tightening them would have similar effects on balance. Back when I was doing thought experiments for my Prince rig, I considered running the jib sheets off the yardarms; I don't remember if it became my preferred design or not. It seems that no matter how big the hull, you still need more room :-).
