There is also something called the corrugated type N, which is specified
terms of return loss. These numbers can be converted into VSWR, giving:

1-2GHz - 1.04
2-3GHz - 1.08

which is pretty darned good.
Pretty darn good if you are not a guy who does the handling of that
corrugated 'cable'.

Another factor here is the power handling of the connectors. The
type N can handle 10kW peaks and 600W continuous; this isn't specified for
the BNC and SMA, but it is a fair assumption that they won't get anywhere
near that sort of power.
Let's just put it this way: any cable that can be terminated with BNC or SMA
would give way long before connector becomes limiting item in that assembly.
