Boeing to take on Airbus with (1000 seat) giant 797 Blended Wing plane

....Boeing is preparing a 1000 passenger jet that could reshape the Air travel industry for the next 100 years. The radical Blended Wing design has been developed by Boeing in cooperation with the NASA Langley Research Center. The mammoth plane will have a wing span of 265 feet compared to the 747

i wonder how they are going to meet faa regs on evacuation? i know airbus had a helluva time designing escape slides that would work from the upper deck in moderate to high winds. the blended wing puts pax way in the middle of the aircraft structure, the only access would be through the middle of the leading edge of the wing.
