Brazing is a fine art if the metal is made to hot it will crack next to the weld not at the weld. This is typically how all brazed frames crack. I believe the proper term is HSS temper that gets compromised. If a guy knows what he is doing a brazed frame can be very strong.

The art is truly with the experienced welder. That said I think tig welding trumps all forms of welding because the strength of the metal right near the weld is not compromised. I still have some faith in a lugged frame way more than today's department store stuff.
Still gotta have a since of humor.
