The same line that could be taken to mean that Prone is freestyle also means that kneeling is freestyle.

The line is:

Freestyle: Any position that is safe and comfortable to the shooter and does not infringe the rules above.

Prone, Kneeling and Standing definitions are above that - so that means if you take a kneeling shot in a Freestyle lane it must not break the kneeling rules - just as it must not break the prone rules.

That was my point - if people are saying that it's ok to adopt a kneeling position in a freestyle lane that would have been an illegal kneeling position on a kneeling lane, then they're also saying that it's ok to adopt an illegal prone position on a freestyle lane. It's either ok to infringe the rules above or it isn't - there's no mention of being selective about which rules do and do not apply.
