This is "common" and done a "lot" where exactly? What industry?

I have worked in a few and cannot ever recall that pattern even being in use.

Not to mention that your solution is fixed size. How can someone add and remove nodes to a fixed size structure and yet manage to not correctly hook those up? And yet is something that only shows up over time? If they are directly manipulating the structure all over the place and not using a well defined API then certainly that would be the case but that would be true for any data structure entity, like lists, hashes even databases. Is that the real problem that there is no well defined API?
