Default Brick Ties

Has anyone considered using brick ties to aid in tying the dome to the inner arch?
Do you think it might be a good Idea?
I thought perhaps of using a few but not sure if it would be a help or hindrance with differential thermal expansion etc.

most likely a hindrance due to the different expansion rates, I would guess they would lead to some sort of cracking issues, how severe is anyone's guess.
