If a lens has its own mount point, I tend to attach my Black Rapid strap to the lens which includes the 70-200/2.8. That said, I also use a hand strap which allows me to add a little support at the camera body even when the lens is hanging by the strap.
As you mention, it's all about torque on the lens mount. To me, when I hold the camera, the lever arm and weight out there on the front of the 70-200/2.8 feels like much more presure on the mount then the camera body imparts when holding by the lens foot.
