I actually thought about that too.  The only reason I didn't put it there
was that if someone ever decide to make a skill or something that would
make you able to fight in POS_STANDING then that would not be an
appropriate place.  For example, say someone has monks or just wants to
make a skill called "free fighting" which would put them standing just long
enough to flee or get a standing only skill off.  But then they could make
it an affect flag and add that to the check in perform_violence.  Hmm,
maybe that would be a better place for it......
