Heart Myth?

From the FAQ, Tabata This:

"Lying down between exercises lowers HR faster than standing, sitting or walking, indicating better recovery in the short 60 second rest."

Ever since my high-school cross country days, we were told not to kneel/lay down/stop moving after high-intensity activity for one of a million reasons. "It's bad for the heart to change speeds this fast." "You're more likely to puke." "Your muscles can lock up..." ad nauseam. Does anyone know what's going on here?
