There is a very simple solution. Set C1 to ON and exposure remains
locked on the original subject while tracking still works.

If you want to recompose, let go of the shutter and press again.

That was the workaround I suggested in my OP but remember to switch
it of when you use auto area af in af-s mode because there it first
locks exposure and then determines the AF point which is also
incorrect: it should be the other way round. C1 off works correct
however

JP, thank you for this thread, it's been interesting. I don't mean the following to sound insulting. I really don't. But: who heck lets the camera choose the AF point? (auto area af in af-s)? I can see closest-subject in some caes as always being right, but that has limits to.

So two questions:
1) What is "auto AF"? (is this a rename of "closest-subject?")
2) When do you anticipate using it?
