At the pointy end,in our job as energy managers,this falls under category 3,after managing energy of aircraft,and the energy of the crew.It manages the energy of the passengers.
If we come to an RTO abrupt stop,the pax are going to be full of it(energy),and its unlikely to be positive!. They will immediately look to the cabin staff for answers.
If the cabin staff stay seated in their takeoff positions,looking concerned,this could easily add to the already negative energy level amongst the pax.
However,if the pax see the cabin staff instantly responding to the calming words of Captain Roger Moore,"Cabin attendants to your stations",..and watch as they (cabin staff)check the conditions outside their responsible exits,this will add some positive energy back to the situation.
The pax will be aware that something is being done for them,and may prevent them taking things into their own hands!
Its all about the energy..ain't it!

Yaw_String. As a fully qualified, multi thousand hour passenger ;-) allow me to agree wholeheartedly. It often strikes me that the cabin crew are so outnumbered by the pax that as soon as things go beyond a certain point, control can never be recovered. eg if more than a given number start standing-up and removing bags while still taxing to the stand, the cc will never get them to get back in their seats, I have seen that happen many times. It also strikes me that the modern passenger is more aggressive and more ready to assert their right to make their own decisions in a situation they don't know that they don't understand. Any help the cabin crew can get from the front must be valuable.
