The policy of giving the landing clearance concurrently to multiple aircraft clearly invites this kind of incident, be it due to stepped on transmissions, radio failure, or, as in this case operator error. Implementing a safer system seems sensible!
LAND AFTER clearances are still given in EU, fortunately, as sometimes it makes the difference between a mandatory missed approach due preceding (rival) aircraft slowly vacating at end of a 3km runway
