Would the MonoFil cut a rope in a cross-loaded fall?

Obviously these elegant little 'biners are strong enough to hold a fall when cross loaded (7kN), but I wonder if the MonoFil gate would in fact be too thin for a cross loaded rope? Could a crossloaded Monofil gate end up cutting the rope or webbing? Has this been addressed? Is the emphasis on the STRING to avoid this from happening? Thanks.
