My first time, I used only 1 rubber as advised then my kite stalled after a jump, got line tangled and the mount broke in half. Camrig sent me a new one
I have a high Y setup so the lifeline is not an issue. I set up all 4 rubbers now and haven't had any issues last couple of times i used it. Launch can be sketchy, ideally you need one guy launching your kite and one launching your gopro lol
One time I had 4 rubbers thing on and got a small tangle the camrig setup slid down the lines but didn't break. So i don't think the lifeline would be an issue even with rubbers on, if the kite pulls you enough it will slide down easily. You don't need so much force to pull the lines through so I don't think i would be an issue.
Though it is possible that line mount with or without all rubber make a big line mess which would disable your life line.

Line wrap can happen anytime your kite stalls and lines falls slack on top of the camrig/gopro. I have even had a line wrap around the high Y without camrig... I haven't had a kite stall in a long time though, usually it happens when I jump with rotation and land backward then i don't redirect kite hard so it stalls
I would say don't use it if your kite stalls often on jump or if you are not comfortable in surf. I have some friends who have never had any issues but they probably are a little more risk adverse when kiting. If you wipe out often expect the lines to wrap around camrig and have to self rescue and re rig...
Here is an example of my setup:
