on a hillside, mower sliding, front brakes applied but slick tires on the front casters will just continue to slip on the grass...

I think on hill sides the more important thing would be a caster lock. ie something to lock the casters from spinning thus keeping the mower pointed in the direction you want to travel.

Also, I'd put most hills side accidents with operator error and not poor equipment design. People get too comfortable/cocky on their machines and push the envelope...
