Following the launch of the A340NG the next logical step seems to launch
the A330NG.

Some questions :

Can the modified A340NG wing be mounted with two big twins, just like it
is possible with the A330/40. One could assume so but I can't get
confirmation of this anywhere.

If two beefed Trents (or similar) could be mounted on the NG wings, what
about the ground clearance ? Are the new legs tall enough to provide
sufficient clearance for Trent 800s or PW 4Ks such as mounted on the 777
?

As you may have guessed this is more a what-if-game than a confirmed
rumour. I am well aware that other considerations must be taken into
account, but would appreciate any constructive comments on the two items
mentioned above.
