I know it's a "bad" thing to curve the wrist to reach to 6 and 5 strings with the fretting hand, but how else could you do it if you weren't in the classical position with the neck quite high?

Tilt your neck up higher and raise that strap on the guitar. George Harrison may have looked corny, but that's how a guitar should be played...

what i'm specifically asking is whether there is any strategy for fretting the sixth and 5th strings while standing up (i.e. playing like you're playing a show) without having to really bend the wrist up towards the fretboard? i.e. can it be done simply by bending the fingers? you are the egg, i know.

yes. adjust your strap so your guitar is higher on your body. its not cool, but neither is carpal tunnel syndrome

hah..man....what you do is get a Flying V.
This way, when you tilt the neck a little bit...you'll still look cool

plus if you put the damn V between your legs while sitting down,
it'll fit perfectly as you're suppost to have the guitar posistion
properly while sitting down
Use your music books to raise your left foot.
