I called RotoPax to see if this pressure would cause a leak, and they said heck no. They drive pickup trucks on the RotoPax tanks in their parking lot for testing. As mentioned above, the sun and hot weather has more to do with the shape than stacking stuff on top of it. On a hot day coming home the tank ballooned way up but never leaked.
This is exactly what I have done. Except not on the tail rack and not with the Rotopax mounting hardware. But it made an excellent base for my BMW bag.
