Most have never set it like we do the Back Stay. I tested mine in curosity one time when I thought it was right...5 pounds. Then softer in little air and higher in heavier air. I don't think it made any difference.
The rig design today and shroud tension has nothing to do with tuning unless there is an effect on the air hitting the pressure points of the sail. Mast bend and hence flatness of the mainsail can be handled by the connections to the chainplates. Then it is increased to prevent knuckling of the jib luff when needed.
Some has said in the past that the next move forward for the EC12 may be in rig design. I think that is coming. Meanwhile, follow your gut.
