Now if you happen to bring 70~80 pounds bag on board and place it in the overhead bin, and if the bin fall down apart, you are going to face rather serious consequences

FYI, typical bin can handle about 50~100 lbs of weight per compartment.
Standard placarded weight for a normal full size overhead bin is 85 lbs to 115 lbs depending on aircraft, and will hold three roll-a-boards if stowed wheels first/wheels out. This would indicate that roll-a-boards should be no more than around 25 lbs each, or around 12 kilos. How much is yours?!

There has been increasing concern from aviation safety groups - particularly in the UK - due to the push for more and more carry-on to go into the cabin and the largely unregulated nature of the weights.
