Alot of cargo is palletized, so it would be reasonably simple to load accordingly, lower and lighter to the outboard, higher and heavy to the center. Very functional, in fact....just not particularly efficient

I would think that in addition to the fore and aft c.g. limits, the allowable lateral c.g. would be a big player as well.
It would be interesting to loadplan, for sure.
