An L plate won't help at all

I would highly recommend mounting an L bracket such as the one I use from Kirk Enterprises. This would take most of the strain off the tripod thread on the camera when attaching a strap to the tripod hole in the L bracket

Think about it, Larry. The base plate still takes the very same strain through the attachment to the tripod thread. You're just adding a piece between the strap and the tripod thread, but it doesn't help with the issue at hand.
