Gives a new meaning to the term "Circling Approach"?  I dont see that happening here.  The FAA loves the "stabilized approach" and I don't see landing an airliner to a circle.  Sure you can touch down into the wind, but then you have an immediate side load on the gear during the rollout as you keep yourself on the curving centerline.  I doubt the gear is currently designed to do much more than go straight at the liftoff and touchdown speeds those guys operate at.
