On the lower platforms it's survivable.
I've survived through a Scream with the other tank dead numerous times, with Energy Shield up and while tanking up top (SM). You do take a lot more damage for sure, but if your healers are prepared and amazing you can make it - credit to them as I certainly don't stack Endurance. Pretty sure I've even survived one Scream without my CD, but that was likely just luck.

That said I think your way is likely more healer friendly as long as you're quick with the jumping. Dunno why, but I always seem to end up tanking this thing with new tanks that have trouble seeing the spit, so I'll likely be trying this out the next time I end up there on my tank.
Time for a nap.
