[Bards] A mildly amusing thought on bowing courtesies.

Being a military individual, all this talk of proper bowing makes me
think of the saluting regulations in the army.  Salute from 6 paces
away, hold it until they return it or you have walked past them (again
usually about 6 paces).  If you are carrying many bulky objects do not
literally drop them or risk spilling dangerously hot beverages on
yourself just to salute an officer but greet them with whatever the
manditory 'greeting of the day' is or at least "Good morning, sir."
Which sometimes gets on the nerves of the officers as much as the
saluting does, especially when you have a horde of enlisted invade
officer territory or vice versa...  So in places where there is much
saluting they have 'no salute' zones... So I am forced to wonder, are
there 'no bow' zones to prevent traffic jams and poor broken-kneed
(backed... legged...) newbies at major events with multiple people
with their shiney things on thier heads instead of their collars?
