I'm skeptical that it'll make rigging more robust. Simpler is typically
more stable.

At this point it may be better/easier to implement a native empty
drawtype for bones rather than try to shoehorn them into the armature
hierarchy. If it looks like an empty and moves like an empty, who cares
if it's really a bone? ... especially if it works better.
