I would also think their insurance carrier might have a say in the safety aspects of a plane crashing while people are "standing in their seats"!
Like was mentioned before, airline seats are made to crumple to absorb the shock of a crash, what kind of safety is incorporated into these "standing seats" to alleviate some of the shock from a crash?
I'd be surprised if many airline insurance carriers would want to insure a flight while people sitting in "standing seats".
No insurance, no flying.
