I have to totally agree with you on this issue (minimum shutter speed in A mode).
I know you did not want a work around (S mode) but here is how I cope with this RX100 deficiency.

I shoot A mode with auto ISO.
I assigned ISO to the EAST side of the Control Wheel. (moved flash to Fn)
When shutter speed is too slow (indoor shots), I click EAST and turn up ISO.
Or I set the lower limit of the Auto ISO range to force the ISO above 125.

This is not the right answer but, for me, the other virtues of RX100 out-weighed this issue.
