Oh so shiny 2000

Personally, I find that having just one foot firmly on the ground is far more stable than trying to tip-toe between two feet during a stop. 

Just rest your body on one thigh on the seat before you come to a stop, you will have much firm footing than tip-toe between both feet.

By habit and preference I do tend to go into neutral at stop lights, which necessitates use of both feet to get back in gear and underway.   I know most advise against that practice.

I'm not sure why both feet are required. Once stopped, just switch to the right foot down.

Years of riding dirt bikes with 38"+ standover height gives me plenty of practice being stable resting on one foot.
