I understand the performance capabilities and regulations, and the fact that you can land above max landing weight back at the departure runway - just with inspections required and possible brake/wheel/tire damage. However we commonly see reports of crews burning off and/or jettisoning fuel to get below or near max landing weight to minimize damage on landing after an engine failure on takeoff or climb.
