+1, I like this feature and never had any issues with it.

My car had an unrelated fault which meant ASS wasn't active for a few days; I missed it.

Even easier than switching to DS mode, if you know you need to make a quick start from lights, you can ease off the brake very slight for half a second car restarts.
