Footing Stback From Descending Slope

While the house footings seem to be set back appropriately to meet GA code, I am concerned about the deck/patio footings.

They do not meet the H/3 provision and look to me like just a little erosion of that embankment will undermine any support for that deck.

I am trying to develop verbiage to relate my concern.

Does Section R403.1.7 "Footings on or adjacent to slopes" (we still use IRC 2000 with amendments here in GA) apply to this patio/deck situation?
