Maybe this could be rephrased: add an alternative "StrictHostKeyChecking
silent" and, ideally, make it the default.  Like with
"StrictHostKeyChecking no", add hosts silently; but still be strict when
a key has changed, and refuse to connect.

(The documentation is vague on this, and I'm too chicken to confirm my
interpretation, but I take it "StrictHostKeyChecking no" will permit you
to connect to a host whose key has changed.)
