Oh, it's not about riding it hard, it's about riding conditions and road conditions. If you have stop on a sandy patch or on gravel, you do not want to be heavy on the front brake. Any amount of defensive driving cannot prevent unforeseeable incidents that may require you to stop on a loose gravel shoulder or something. You need to have independent control of the front and rear brakes because each provides unique braking characteristics.
But, if you don't have that luxury because of a physical handicap, then I guess you just make do with a compromise.
The linked brakes certainly are the most practical solution, and maybe some kind of actuation valve could deliver more or less braking either to the front or back.
