I agree. One step further would be to automatically look for nearby point
and instead of creating a new checked point just check the closest if it
is closer than say 10 meters.
Anohter useful hotkey would be a command to check latest referred point,
ie if i press select and found a street corner along the route i could
check it with one key press instead of current visit to the exploration
Also a warning when exiting LS if there are unsaved checked points would
