I think the teams who were on course at the time of stoppage wouldn't exactly be excited to be set on 'pause' mid-effort ...

... but they would probably prefer that to crashing.

My point exactly! If you want to prioritize safety, sometimes you have to sacrifice fair race for safe race.

In downhill ski racing, the skiers that are stopped due to problems with other sikres in front get to choose when to start again. Most have a completely pragmatic approach to it: this won´t happen to anyone very often (fortunately), and they are happy to stay safe rather than go «all in» to a potentially dangerous situation that may force them to slow down or change course, and thus lose time anyway.
