Thinking of street riding techniques; years ago, I got in the habit of keeping my feet on the pegs until coming to a complete stop, and bringing my feet up on them the moment that I begin acceleration. My foot remains near the pedal while in motion. Over time I developed the habit of transitioning to only using the rear brake when approaching very slow speeds.
Practice leads to habit.

+1 for improved situational awareness in all cases.
