I've seen pictures in the past of beans grown on splayed supports as you describe
In some ways it's logical and if it works for you that's great.
For me it seems that growing them on the splayed system means that the roots of the bean plants are going to be closer to each other than if grown on a tepee or 'A' frame and for that reason I prefer not to do it your way.
I think the best way, if you have the space, is to grow the beans on a continuous arch over a pathway as I've seen done in some lovely walled kitchen gardens - that way you have the best of all worlds
