Complex systems in a tricky game, yes...
Both systems will result in increased time for the energy to be dissipated, but rather than treating the components individually, it is another dynamic element in a dynamic system. More saying that while during the tearing phase of a screamer, it will be limited to exerting 2kN on the gear. The stretchy ring will not be so restricted, may put far more tension on the gear or less, depending on the construction - compare the catch that would result from a few loops of bike inner tube to a 2cm-thick o-ring, and as the object stretches, the forces increase until either the fall is caught or the sling is reached and force is put directly onto the gear. But any soft-catch item is good, if i climbed hard, i'd have some :)
