Make sense.  I actually tried this approach at a car show today using my 24 1.4L II and it worked very well!

Thanks again.

Glad that helped! 

FWIW, as I stated before, the 1D X should obviate this issue.  I assume it will have similar customizations as the 1D IV, where you can actually specify upper and lower limits not only for ISO, but also for aperture and/or shutter speed.  You can also register up to 3 sets of C.Fn settings.  So, you could have a C.Fn set for people-shooting where the minimum shutter was 1/160 s, and perhaps minimum aperture of f/1.8, and then use Av mode with Auto ISO and you'd be good to go.
