Hi there...
The system must know your are landing. There is an history of state transitions which clearly point to landing; even more: it seems there was an engine with its reverser deployed... So, why FADEC accelerates the other engine? Merely because the pilot missed or forgot to put the TL at the proper detent? Im sorry, but this sounds very buggy to me.
Given the danger inherent to the procedure, this kind of heuristics should be reviewed and tested even by dummies. In my eyes, if the system gets confused by your actions, then it should be much beter (read safe), to prompt the pilot with a small set of possible steps to take, rather than taking dangerous ("intelligent"), assumptions.
