Please stop using the A key for the pairing screen

When using a keyboard to chat in game it is too easy to accidentally hit the A key (pairing screen) and cause your avatar to stop completely. This has happened to me and many people I know while riding with others and also while leading a ride. Even with years of experience (or a dodgy M key) it is possible to ruin your ride by hitting A without meaning to.

Surely this could and should be changed to a combo of Shift+A or similar to avoid these hassles. Or moved to a different key. It doesn’t make sense using a key that is very likely to be hit when someone starts typing. Alternatively, allow the avatar to keep moving rather than coming to a complete stop. Then you could back out of the pairing screen without any adverse effects.
