This would be an option, yes. Also for other use cases than this reported one.

No. It is not only about catching errors. If, for example, your default
method is "ftp", expanding "/sudo:" would not result in an error, but in
the password request for "address@hidden" (in my case). This must be
suppressed as well, so we still need this flag to tell Tramp not to
expand an incomplete filename.

I'll commit it later today.
