I also suspect that their analysis will not yield much helpful insight.
I suspect that also.

Some evidence may be gleaned from looking over the 2,500 posts on this thread, many of which are attempts at amateur psychology. If there is insight to be gained, I suspect it would have appeared here by now.

I agree.

Good starts have been made publically by TAM, in prohibiting landings at CGH in the wet, or without 2 TR OP.
And by the government/airport authority in planning to improve the overrun facilities at the end of 35L.

And, on might think, by Airbus, the JAA, and the FAA, in reminding everyone to reduce thrust levers to idle on each and every landing (if we believe that reminding people of such basic items is efficacious. We have reason to doubt it.)
