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.
That's it in a nutshell.

Freestyle is defined as do what you like. So it conflicts with the prone position which is only allowed on freestyle lanes which says you can't. The kneeling thing is a bit of a red herring, but the way the discussion was started.

It's not a 5 minute fix, but hopefully there's a short elegant solution to be had that's simple as well.
