Maybe something like the straps Mariachi players use would help (the ones with the hook for the sound hole). .... which even if it is structurally okay, might dampen the sound...
I just spent 15 minutes looking online, I had no idea those types existed. I'm pretty sure that that would interfere with the bridge and yeah, I agree with you, the soundboard probably isn't made for that stress, mechanically and acoustically.

Yeah, I figured it was a dead end but thought I'd throw it out there anyway. Another idea could be to use the suction cups from a guitar support. Not necessarily to attach the strap but rather to work as a stop so it stays in the position you want. So still wrap around guitar but add suction cups to position.
