I thought I was gonna see we were on page 900 from one of the previous ones.... But I’ll bite... For the OP: IMHO there is nothing wrong with a mid-field cross. It’s no more dangerous than any other. I think it’s more common than any other cross-wind entry, and I would argue that it is safer than others. No matter where/how you enter, some nutcase barreling NORDO into the pattern can spoil your day, regardless. That said, when I call CWMF I actually cross almost at the departure threshold. That gives me a view of anything on the runway and more closely conforms to the traditional cross wind entry. Plus, unlike the traditional cross wind, this method keeps you clear of departures as very few aircraft are gonna be at pattern altitude by that point. But always clear upwind as you pass over and turn to downwind.
