I've even seen staff on Connect and GWR and SWR and NR (in orange) with their feet up on the opposite seats.

I wonder if the person who took the photo, and thereby got their 15 mins of fame, had a first class ticket?

Most first class ticket holders, IME welcome the removal of standard class ticket holders and are therefore most unlikely to complain about such removal.
