Will Boeing End Up Making A 777-10X?

Submitted
As Boeing inches towards the first flight of the Boeing 777X later this month, more leaks and sneak previews are making their way to the media. But one special version of the 777X, the 777-10X has not been heard of in some time. Will Boeing end up building the 777-10X? Or is it just a pipe dream with no real-world application?

Just saying it might get toooooooo long. 777-9 looks beautiful, but the 10 start to look like a Dash-8...

Oh sorry, I misread the question. Of course the 737 mcas does not prevent tailstrikes. The best way to avoid tailstrikes is not exceed the recommended rotation rate. But sometimes a tailstrike is the best option, think about a windshear or blocked runway. So you wouldn’t want a system to prevent you from doing that.
