I have never seen a lagging failure and on site the lagging often looks

Isn't this true of *many* retaining walls of all types of construction? I once saw a very old 10' tall concrete "retaining wall" along a sidewalk, that had weathered enough so you could see that in fact it was a cliff of rocky soil that had been plastered to look like a concrete wall! It had been there a very long time, about 70+ years. The plaster had failed, but the soil hadn't.
Not that I'm suggesting that method of constructing retaining walls....
