There's a difference in landing in VMC of IFR flight and landing of VFR visual circuit. Most IFR flights land in VMC but stabilisation criteria remain 1000ft. But íf you cancel IFR or cleared for a visual circuit/approach then it is 500ft. But now ATC asking for higher speeds like 160kt till four or five miles, in a light aircraft it becomes difficult to get the speed within the parameters. So, Airbus has suggested that only for speed and thrust the stabilisation altitude can be lowered to 500ft if the speed is decreasing towards the the criteran after approval from the authority. There's a video on this in Airbuswin.
