Landing on same 10 foot section of tarmac

You'd think airports would like that, as it would make maintenance easier. Sure, they have to replace that section more often, but replacing one small section only takes a runway out of service for a couple days.

Besides, couldn't they adjust where that 10 foot section was to even out the wear if they wanted, by changing the ILS markers?
