Talking Standing to show Respect

I know there is a lot of regional customs on the pow-wow trail, but what is correct in the following cases:

Q: Should a drum's singers stand during:

> Grand Entry (If you are not the ones singing)
>During the Flag Song
>During the Invocation/Prayer
>During Honor Songs
>During Vet's Song
>When the Jingle dress Dancers are Dancing--especially during a requested healing/blessing song for the sick.

What do you singers think? How is it done in your region?
