While we're digressing. What's the etiquette when I sit next to someone on a full train/tram and then free space becomes unavailable?

I know both of us really want me to move to the empty row, but it seems a bit rude to just shift.
Tell me about it. If my neighbor moves to an empty seat, should I be relieved or offended?
It's like being on the bus and your stop is right at the end of the line, and you soon realize, so is your neighbour's. Do you remain seated next to them on an otherwise completely empty bus, or shift at the earliest conceivable opportunity?
We're getting into 1st world problem territory here though I fear.
