Good idea, at least on the BCF2000 where you do not have enough button
pairs. Probably there are categories of users, those who use prev/next
marker, and others who use rew/ffwd (me belonging to the second
category, except while mastering - jumping to CD track labels).
Switching modes though should be easily reachable (your proposal of
*one* button is fine, but shift+button might be not).
