Anything can happen at any given time especially when your riding off-road.
I've seen the impossible made possible..

Your tire is moving in the momentum of where you don't want the tube to be,
I see a possible catapult or lock up. What if the knobs catch a corner of tube?? You could also drop the bike on that side and bend something, so now you have more problems to deal with. You see where I'm getting at?
A small canister like the stock tool pouch is O.K. and is definetly out of the way but you have a telephone pole back there amigo..

I see an empty luggage rack that can accomodate your tools, tubes and such easily.

Gotta go to work see ya..
