Yeah, I've changed my mind; I agree with you.

The only sane place to put the responsibility for the view point is in
the model description.  It's all well and good for the FDM to know
where the cockpit it, but that won't do us any good when it goofs by
as little as 50cm and the pilot can't see over the panel.  :)

I'll chop the cockpit stuff out of YASim as soon as someone tells me
it's OK.
