It's twin "top" tubes, single tube for the back, and it might not all be the same thickness. Plenty
of "women's" framed town bikes don't have any more support for the front.

Having said that, I'd be surprised if you couldn't get comparable flex in the places you want it
with less weight using a more conventional design. I'd be curius to see reviews though.
