The unsupported joint between the 2 5” sections could present a problem, I’m no authority, but grain orientation combined with dowels, or biscuits, or dominoes, etc. could result in an ugly failure if/when overly stressed. I’m no master of fine furniture but your concerns about design raised an eyebrow. As for cupping, crowning, etc. I can’t help ya. Best of luck, judging by your projects, this will be all sorted out and conquered in a day or two.
