1) Are they the same people who are saying that the computer should not allow the pilot to command reverse on one engine and above idle thrust on the other the same people who are appalled at the thought of the computer second-guessing the pilot?

2) I can't immediately see any reason why a Boeing-style interlock: [all TLs not at idle: no reverse allowed] shouldn't be implemented on Airbus types, given that reverse thrust has a secondary effect on stopping distance but may compromise go-around.

3) Should it be SOP not to select reverse (on one or both) until spoiler deployment is confirmed, given that reverse thrust has a secondary effect on stopping distance but may compromise go-around?
