What an awesome idea!!! Do you really think they planned it that way??
Sure do, but it is one hell of a balancing act... it is best to keep them teetering without going over the edge and at the same time try grab the booty (gold)
This is known as The Triffin Dilemma or The Triffin Paradox.
The Triffin Dilemma and The Saver's Curse
I suspect the German's have known for a long time how this works, most German's are quite switched on with finance. The problem arises when their debt ridden fellow country's are asking for money and all eyes are on Germany to fork out.
I'm surprised country's like the PIIGS have not simply exited the euro. This is where it's become a political issue where PIIGS country's are 'proud' to be part of the euro and don't want to be seen leaving and going back.
As far as the USD rising that poses challenges as if it does rise the fed can use this as a buffer zone to print more essentially inflating their way out of debt. The question i have is would a high USD really effect America that badly? i see them as simply a service economy and a stronger dollar would at least bring prices of goods down assisting savings rates in a near 0% interest economy.
I may be missing some glaring issue here it's simply because there are just so many factors to comprehend. I'm sure if i did miss something it will be picked up

Interesting followup article today...

But in a blunt rebuttal from the nation's top economic department, a new Treasury paper says trying to curb the dollar through market intervention could lead to market instability.
