I don't think fraying would be such a problem if you'd cut the hole using a woodburning tool - but I agree with the "rusting" - those brads are just not all that - and from the one close up pic in the listing you can tell it's just a "regular" one.
The idea is FANTASTIC! I agree! - if there was just a way to have a super-brad to assemble the layers LOL
