Issue #33835: Metal Armor and Robot Armor limb pieces accept torso mods due to keyword errors

 
The armors have a collection of bugged ma_armor_Universal_Lining_X keywords that bypass the normal limb-torso restrictions that all other armors have, resulting in them accepting the Dense mod, which is normally exclusive to torso pieces. There is a number of reasons I believe this was unintentional:

1. Dense is made craftable by this, but Padded, its weaker counterpart, isn't, as it has no recipe. In fact, Dense is the only craftable "universal" torso mod.
2. Most torso mods do not stack properly (or at all), including Dense, which only applies its effect once.
3. "Universal" mods do not have loose mods specified, resulting in them getting destroyed when taken off.
