Limiting the passenger capacity of Airbuses

Should a limit be placed on the capacity of Airbuses?An airbus a330 carrying 228 passengers went down into the sea 3 months ago.Considering that the A330 can actually carry from 244-408 passengers and the recently incepted Airbus A380 has a standard passenger configuration of 450-644,there is a great potential for a serious death toll.With a fully loaded Airbus A380 in economy class configuration actually able to hold up to 853 passengers we are headed for a sky of the future fiiled with Titanic of the past. The airline industry has not heeded the age old adage "do not place all your eggs in the one basket". So what do you think?Whether we must control size of the new developed airplane?
