By definition, injury is after DR. DR stops damage, which is why its name is "Damage Resistance" (not "injury Resistance").
Which is why we have 'Injury Tolerance: Damage Reduction', correct? Oh wait, that makes absolutely no sense. I don't think 'damage' and 'injury' are as clearly delimited as you think. You may be correct about the way the rules are intended to be used (and your rules are much harder to abuse), but I wouldn't call the existing rules perfectly clear.
