Very, very true.  I'm used to working on 4x4s, with loads of clearance, that
even if they did fall probably would leave plenty of room beneath.  I used
to wonder where the danger is in falling cars, until I got the MG with its
2" of clearance.  It always makes me nervous being underneath mine, so I use
chocks on one end and two jack stands AND two floor jacks just below the car
in case something was to happen to the stands.

Everyone should pay particular attention to this bit of advice from
Frank - a member of my car club (Keystone Region MG ) was killed three
years ago when a "T" series car fell on him. It was supported on only
one Jack stand.
