Did crewmembers prohibit stowage of carry-on baggage and/or personal items in seat pockets unless:

      #1 The seat pocket was restrained to withstand approximately 3 pounds of weight and not the weight of additional carry-on items;
      #2 The contents of the seat pocket would not impede emergency evacuation or strike and injure a passenger; and
      #3 Small lightweight items, such as eyeglasses or a cell phone, can be placed in the seat pocket without exceeding the total designed weight limitation of the seat pocket and does not block anyone from evacuating the row of seats?
