Default switching to LW bumper beam and adding strut brace

trying to think about weight reduction vs. safety..

lets say this vehicle gets into front impact at 30 mph. I know the LW beam would become destroyed but would the OE steel beam really be that much safer? How about if I add a strut brace on top of the LW bumper beam? I know some fools out their using a fiber glass bumper without beams even... but thats another story.
