But, at what point do you determine that? Maybe when they book the ticket, they should ask what you weigh? A little box, "click here if you're a wide body!", which directs them to a page which discusses that they may need two seats?

Yes, the gate agent should have been on the lookout, and stopped the fatty before she got on and told her that she needed two seats. And then the skinny standby girl would never have got on at all. Either way, she wasn't going.
