GPIO Question

According to the documentation, the AMP+ uses GPIO pin 5. I was wondering if this would preclude using it in a power switch - when pin 5 is shorted to ground it will power up the Pi and you can set it up to shut down the Pi as well without corrupting.

So my question is - could I wire a switch in parallel to retain my power on/off functionality?

EDIT: Not seeing the AMP+ in the store.. has it been superseded by the AMP2?
