[PnP] Body (surface) percentages

The only system I played that went (almost) as far was "The Morrow Project" (post-apocalypse game).  In this the average man had something like 250 body points, and the percentages were multiplied out so you would know how many points of damage your hand or upper arm could take.

However, it also had the idea of instant kills.  Torso had 4 zones (dead center, and 3 zones out from it to the ribs) while head had one, so you didn't need to shoot out all 250 points to whack someone.

Yes, the percentages seem reasonable (speaking as one who when I was a 
medic had to study such percentages for dealing with burns). However 
since P&P uses a generic hit point system those percentages should have 
little affect on the game. If  someone want to complicate the game to 
'add realism' to the injuries then the percentages would be useful.
