Colin - can you update your location / vehicle in your profile?
Second - your first paragraphs make you sound like a lawyer trolling for business.
Both my 2008 and my 2014 have included sensors on both the inside and outside pads, so I can't really comment other than to say my experience has been very different from yours.
Also, if your safety claim is legitimate, you are barking up the wrong tree. You should be sending your safety concerns to NHTSA (USA), Transport Canada (Canada), Department of Infrastructure/Regional Development/Cities (Australia), not VW. VW won't do anything until a governmental agency (like those listed above) tell them to.
Personally, I think someone at your dealership cut some corners when they replaced the brakes. But I'm still not sure where they found a brake pad wear sensor with only one sensor on it. Everything for the Touareg, Q7, and Cayenne have 2 sensors on them and have since day one.
