Hmm.  There's some merit in that position, but consider this: we are
encouraging people rather strongly to move to the add_missing_from=false
behavior.  So add_missing_from=true could be seen as a testing situation
in which you'd like to know which of your queries have a problem, while
not actually causing your app to fail.  Strict backwards compatibility
won't produce the warning but also won't help you find what will break.
