That may work for you. I seal the exterior of the tenons on mine as you still have end grain in the side of the tenon. I have had just the tenon split/crack. I don’t think sealing will prevent shrinkage, just cracking.

The hose clamp is a novel idea that may work. It probably depends on the wood because strong movement may also cause the flexible clamp to go oval just like the tenon.
