If that's the case I think that's a bad idea, over time the metal banjo bolt will work harden, get stress cracks and eventually fail. You want some strain relief there, normally by fixing the line from the caliper to the fork guards, so the flex is only above them.

Hmmm...... isn't the original like that on the RHS?
