To me it makes more sense if this "move and stop" is the default method
(ie. selected with a positive delay value).  The negative value could
be for experts which want just the move delay.

But why not separate the two timeout settings, e.g. make it a cons with
the "move delay" in the car and "stopped delay" in the cdr.  That's
easy to set via customize.
