There are plenty of real life examples of people being incapacitated but conscious while they bleed out. I don't really consider this a Murphy.
Further, failing an "unconsciousness" roll might not mean that they're really unconscious, but might be semi-conscious but completely out of it because of pain, or otherwise unable to act correctly. Could well have a slow progression from stunned (Largely out of it, but able to defend, even though at a penalty) to even more out of it (Largely the same, but unable to defend), and eventually true unconsciousness.
