Note, even if you do apply SS to other movement forms, it is all still subject to power stacking.

which, if you obsess on physics, leads to some interesting effects. For example, in a 6 second leap, you rise for 3 seconds then fall. So you don't do any higher than 144.9 feet. (d=.5at^2)

As a default, it applies to a land based movement effect. Theoretically, you could "swap" the land based Movement Effect for a Flight based Movement Effect. It would then apply to flight only. if you wanted to have it apply to land based movement as well, add a secondary Movement Effect and dub it "Land Based" or simply call it "Running". Add it as a Stunt or as an Extra, and your problem is solved.
