Agreed. This came up in a non-bike forum, and when someone said he waited as he "didn't see the need to make people pass him more than once" he got a lot of favourable replies (one person said he was living proof that not all heroes wear capes). It's just the nice thing to do.

If there is a bike lane, I definitely go to the front (or behind any cyclists stopped there). It's a separate lane. How is that any different than cars going forward as far as possible in their lane on a multi-lane street?
