Out of curiosity: do you not keep your knees slightly bent in your aikido stance?
I do but not as much as I would have to to do for the tailbone tucking in.

Btw, I notice some sensei's have a straight spine and strong connectivity to the hands but they seem to achieve that by actually leaning forward slightly to achieve the straight spine.

Draw strength from stillness. Learn to act without acting. And never underestimate a samurai cat.
