I've read that Hikitsuchi sensei used to perform Shinto ceremonies for hours to celebrate O-Sensei, and they were immediately followed by demonstrations. His students had to keep ready to stand up and practice.

On the formal status of seiza : in Kagemusha (Kurosawa movie), the people sit in seiza for formal situations (when they are on duty), and sit cross-legged when off-duty.
