Regarding the live inventory, it is so common to have those. Another great example is Tower Hobbies. I placed a quantity of 4 of these parts I needed for my car and in the end, it complained saying that one will be back ordered and whether I would like to keep one as a back ordered item or just use the available quantity (3). I needed those parts and needed to stock up on it myself so I ordered all three.
After I placed my order, I went back and checked to see if they truly had a live inventory, indeed they did, the item no longer showed up as stock.
I think any live inventories should show the item as available to everyone UNTIL the item is paid for. Then it's a matter of first-pay first-serve basis. For example, if there is a quantity of 1 of an item, two people can place that item in a cart,
however, during checkout, it should be stated that something is out of stock or not, since it should be well known at that time, unless there is a small chance that there was a race condition, in which one person ordered it at 1:59:30 and another ordered it at 1:59:45...
