But, I'm sure the interior will give you that tucked-in feeling that modern AMs do, so I don't mind too much.

Indeed.

If he's going over an especially dangerous part, yes he can hook himself. Just like if I was planning on jumping a bunch of buses or if I was going over devil's slide and it started to rain. I could stop, take the helmet out of the backpack and put it on. But if he slips or I crash before I make the conscious decision, it doesn't matter.

But the overwhelming majority of the time, he isn't secured in any way, is most likely carrying more stuff than you did, dealing with environmental factors (lightning and wind) and it's doing so for an extended period of time. I don't see how that's less dangerous.
The hook is available to the climber at any point. The helmet is not available to the motorcycle rider until they slow down.

The freak accident slip is just the same as a freak accident tire blowout while cornering on a motorcycle. Both can easily kill.
