This has been very interesting and has told me things about planes I didn't know before. Being a Belt and Braces kind of man, I'd favor a design that has backup systems to try and compensate for the failure of any primary system. One design philosophy seems to be built on the assumption that nothing really bad will happen to the plane, and the other on the assumption that it might.
