I think that all uses cases can come with a solution without having to
modify makepkg. The one you describe means that people don’t really care
about checking the keys by themselves, so the AUR helper they use could
probably use a separated GPG keyring/db with this option set (not sure
if that’s easy to do/configure, but it probably should).
