Berming - More Info Needed

This seems to have been brought up a few times, and one of the first ones had a response from DomeGaia themselves supporting the idea's feasibility. Have there been any documented bermed/buried AirCrete domes? My primary concern is the crush strength of AirCrete, as drainage can be managed easily enough (we are building up, not digging down).
Re: Hobbit Hole/Underground Dome
@odyoda Yes! I want to do the same. Because of the dome shape it is perfect for this application. I plan to do it. The hoop stress of the dome resists the inward pressure of the earth.
