Stealthing out to reset Blackout while tanking sort of works, but it's touchy and depends on the fight (Raptus is a good example of a fight where it doesn't work at all). 25% DR for 6 seconds every 60 is time-averaged to be 2.5% DR, which almost doubles the time-averaged contribution of the hybrid uptime on Shadow Protection. Which is to say that if bosses trickled out consistent damage with no variation, the hybrid would be stochastically superior!

Of course, there are peaks and valleys. If you can predict where the damage is going to be bad and time both your loss of stacks and your blackout to be in a valley and a peak (respectively), then you'll see really great results. If not…yeah.
