I was just speculating to get an answer from someone that has experimented on it.maybe on the material thickness used and sewing it...
well may be sewing it is not the solution. there are lot of adhesives that flexible and reliable enough to do the job. after all, kites we are using now more glued together than stitched (apart from LE seem of course)
i think it is really question of the weight of the different sail cloths with the same strength properties.
well, may be if the sail material is cheap enough to make easy repairable and replaceable kites from the less tough material, it would be reasonable to make kites of that material.
