I'm not the OP, and I don't boot very often at all -- my machines run 24/7 for 
months on end, so I don't know / remember what has to be done in GRUB to get 
to the command line, but the bigger annoyance for me would be waiting for the 
right moment to press that key (if there is a time window associated with when 
you can press that key).

If my machine takes 15 or more seconds to get to the point when I can press 
that single key, unless I am very careful and patient, I am likely to miss 
that window.  (Of course, I am getting older :-(
