Cells individually tapered to a point at the trailing edge?

Was looking at the woopyfly and I wonder if this would work on a kite. Seems sound in principle. Would just need to form a triangle out of the top and bottom skins, maybe less work than mini ribs with better results or combine both? hehe

Drainage along the trailing edge would seem to be the show stopper.
