Those mounts aren't going anywhere. Just because you can come up with a conjectural scenario for failure doesn't mean the actual scenario will lead to failure.
Of course not.
Poor design leads to an increased chance of failure, not a guarantee of failure.
The failure mode I have in mind isn' sudden but rather eventual cracking and separation after subject to vibration and off-axis excessive loading.
