This is consistent with what I've been told by the concierge before ... that boarding, takes you off the list.

I was told that "good" agents/concierge can monitor the boarding process, and may board the plane to pull you out of Y if a space opens up ... but that's an extra step, and the core of what cow says (do not board until they say that J has BOARDED full) is good advice. (As it always is )
