Default Re: Phasing for falling down/standing up

Stand up during the combat phase of the NEXT turn is what the AM rules say (and Skarg has pointed out):

The current AM rules give +4 DX to people slower than the attacker and no advantage to people who are faster than the attacker but slower than the victim (if the victim is faster than the attacker).

What about just making it +4 DX to hit someone who STARTED MOVEMENT PRONE? That gives every attacker a +4 and slower people won't get a +4 on the same turn someone fell down.
