I think you are right. Once you fuse the two colors, you cannot have the whole length hold the same weight.
Part of the whole survivial thing is that you could use this cord for anything- making a shelter, splinting a leg, making a harness. I don't think it has to be only about rappeling down a cliff. Let's be real- is 8 or 10 feet going to get you very far anyway? That is how I still justify calling them survival bracelets. It's about having a supply of cord with you in case you need it.
