The latest incident with the referenced NWA A-330 has gotten the rapt attention of the FAA, you can be sure.
I would expect an emergency airworthiness directive to follow shortly.
No doubt that EASA and the FAA are looking at the design assumptions. But with all the sucesses of the various aircraft designs Boeings, Airbus etc. to accomodate this single system failure there's not a clear conclusion of a violation of the original certificate.

Now on the other hand if there is yet another combination that is at work here we do need to understand that and perhaps work that into our continued airworthiness fix.
