Autocomplete Strict Validation False at the Form or View level

This is more of a curiosity question as I'm not sure many people would encounter the need for this, but if someone has I'd love to hear of potential solutions.
This KB discusses how to set AutoComplete Strict Validation to false, but it does it at the site level, which I think it's a little too overarching. I feel it should be available at the control level. Has anyone tried to allow non-existing values to be input in an AutoComplete control without having to disable it site-wide?

I disable it site-wide, and then for controls that shouldn't allow it I write some rules to clear out the value if it is invalid on change. Not great, but it works.
