In theory this is fine but every time someone has attempted
to change the handling of this in the past autofs has had
problems so I'm a bit wary of the change.

It was originally meant to tell the file system to ignore
invalid options such as could be found in automount maps that
are used with multiple OS implementations that have differences
in their options.

That was, IIRC, primarily NFS although NFS should handle most
(if not all of those) cases these days.

Nevertheless I'm a bit nervous about it, ;)
