It doesn't explicitly (though it's present implicitly in the price of tough skin and the rules for armor layering). This sort of makes sense, as flexible DR doesn't really do anything at the DR levels likely to be present in DF. However, why would mattresses have flexible DR? I'd probably call them homogeneous, but they're not going to be damaged appreciably by any attack that doesn't penetrate DR.

Note that this isn't something special to the DFRPG. To quote p. B483: "Things like nets and mattresses are Diffuse."

Just so we’re clear, there are no spells in either GURPS Magic or DFRPG Spells that are a “cone,” correct? A search of the PDFs for “cone” revealed no hits in either. I assume that neither jet spells nor the Breathe Fire spell create cones, as they are described themselves as beams (and in the Missile Shield entry, they are described as “diffuse streams,” although that also refers to dragon’s breath, which is assume is a cone).

Shape Air is essentially a width 1 cone, but not called one and doesn't seem to have any targeting requirements.

Dragon's breath is a 1 hex wide cone (or an area with a radius equal to the dragon's SM-1).

Right, but not the Breathe Fire spell. Hence the bummer: PCs can only use area effect spells or explosive spells; there’s no cone spells per se.
