I would strongly recommend that the camera be hung by the strap hangers only, which attach to the body casting..
But would not, when mounted on a sturdy tripod as a coloumn studio tripod, due to leverage when gripping the camera, when cocking, the stresds on the bottom plate be greater, than with the camera just hanging on its tripod socket?
