Simple, strong, but is it a good idea?

In Oz of course.

As long as the chair is in the air, they will be being used as designed. Were not meant to be in compression. IIRC

Those stout turnbuckles should do the job.

By eye, they only look to be about 10mm, not all that stout you get down to it, 14mm would be ok.

I'd also drill the end of the threaded eye rods, and lace them to the buckle body to keep it from turning. Too much slop has to be cut into threads intended for hot dip galv to entirely trust the jam nuts.

Fucking over kill if you want my opinion. Even in compression those turn buckles are more than strong enough. All of the bolts are in double sheer which is more than most US sidecar mfgrs use! I wouldn't bother drilling and wiring, a simple dab of paint for a witness mark and you are good to go. All of that being said, it is a rather caveman like approach.

Caveman is cool. I do not see an issue either although I would keep an eye on them especially where the threaded rod joins the u clamp area. .

I know the owner of this bike and its done a lot of distance with this setup without any problems, including outback dirt roads. These are higher quality turnbuckles, not your average hardware store ones. Not a worry I think.
