I haven't done the force calculations but I don't see how that will be strong enough once the forces really start to push on it, especially once it starts to rust out. If nothing else, it will stretch. On a 30" thick wall if you have 10% stretch you are going to see 3 inches of movement. Your stucco coating will not tolerate that.
I would use either epoxy coated rebar or something like this [url-http://www.marshallcomposite.com/cbar.php]fiber-reinforced polymer bar[/url].
Maybe I'm wrong and your wall will hold up. Time will tell I guess. But I would suggest any wall that is actually load bearing be beefed up quite a bit.
It is not possible to get the compaction to the same level as rammed earth if you are using fabric as the form walls. And even rammed earth requires rebar to deal with possible earthquakes or other environments that do not have extremely low humidity. And rammed earth cannot contain large rocks and has to have a carefully prepared soil mix to provided the needed strength, neither of which are being done here.
