I have used lenses as large as 1000/8 and currently use 300/2.8 on monopods and don't feel I need to secure them any better though. I have one of those brackets you first pictured but I never got around to using it (really bought it for mounting a DSLR + telephoto on my telescope imaging setup). I do, for convenience sake, put an Arca plate holder on top of the monopod and RRS or another brand plate on the tripod foot of my telephotos. I don't feel the camera body needs support and I always use a vertical grip on my cameras to balance a heavy lens better.
