Sort of like mcas should have been, and shortly will be.
Do you have a reference? Looking at our FCOM and Maintenance Manual, I see no reference to a speed comparison. The STS seems to work primarily through the active FCC which should only be using the airspeed on the selected side. As a side note, in one Boeing-produced document that I have seen, MCAS is described as a sub-function of the Speed Trim System which leads me to think that the Stall ID function (flaps down) could have the same issue, except of course that it is inhibited by the control column cutout switches.
