Maybe it's time the owner and the crane manufacturer got a brief lecture on fatigue. I don't think you want soft lateral supports either for resisting service loads or seismic loading. If end up with large (relatively) swaying displacements because your lateral support is soft, unpleasant things happen with connections and bolts in particular. Static analysis won't tell you about this.
