I am just suggesting that in a culture that values honor and glory perhaps a Hero who has earned such honor might have a chance to keep his Standing even if he has not used Treasure to maintain it.
If you like, but this is a house-rule. It basically says that a nobody from nowhere who slays a bunch of orcs suddenly gains the right to sit in on councils of rulers outside of adventures. By the book, they'll honor him, but unless he demonstrates his dedication to their culture or settles down there, they won't give him a position of authority.
I was only suggesting the possibility of maintaining Standing that way, not raising it. However, I concede your point. Consider the matter dropped (at least by myself).
