I find that somewhat hard to believe!  Shorter runways and conditions
"less than that of a dry runway" cause the maximum landing weight to
be reduced below structural limits on many occasions (a recent journey
to Chicago Midway with cross winds and fair/poor braking action comes
to mind - no matter how hard I try to forget it! <g>).
