I know it is common to have STI levers and canti brakes on cyclocross bikes, but what about loaded touring bikes?

Has anyone experienced fade or leverage ratio issues using STI levers and canti brakes on a touring bike?
Used to be common on tandems.Spoke Wrench

The issue is cable pull. Levers that were designed for road calipers tend to be marginal, but workable, for canty use.
