I'm sure that was /a/ problem.  But I'm not comfortable attributing that 
problem to the raised floor.

I expect that the same problem would be effected by an elevator that 
doesn't stop perfectly level with the floor, or has too wide a gap 
between the car and the floor, or even on tiled floor.

That really seems to me like it's a sub-optimal design, pushed past it's 
operating parameters by overloading it.

I can't fault the raised floor for that problem.
