Tyro,
For any warning the priority is a/c flight path - e.g on an EFTO it is not a case of doing absolutely nothing until 400' agl... you raise the gear, trim, engage AP etc. I don't see moving a T/L to Idle as any different in this situation - PF should have done it anyway.
Agreed !
That's covered by the *Normal procedures applied* criterium.

BOAC,
I agree with your last post, though I'm not holding my breath waiting for the "oriental friend". Impossible scenario barring a major re-wiring and re-programming specifically done for this specific series of failure.
As for your question, there is no manual way to extend the ground spoilers in any configuration and no manual way to extend the spoilers in config *Full* and that's valid, whatever extra likely or unlikely failures in the sensors you might think of.
