I wouldn't believe the mistake is that common. I mean for example all Android client tutorials online that deal with notifications show how to write the descriptor, so if people implement their peripheral wrong, they will notice that the descriptor is missing anyway if they connect to it from Android.

And peripherals set up using Android's GATT server api can easily be fixed by releasing app updates.

If this workaround is added, I suspect it rather can increase the amount of buggy devices, since they won't notice that they have done wrong. It even encourages this breaking of the rules since it would save one roundtrip since you don't need to write the descriptor then...
