Discussed multiple times. I have no data to dispute the statement, so at face value: Though we may commonly see that, we really should not be. One of the threads linked a cover-all article by Boeing 777 expert, which went a really long way not to openly say "reducing weight to MLW after a failure resulting to an expedited landing is stupid." Kind of eating a pie.
