That's something I've complained about also. Some BIOS's will insert
a USB drive as the first drive and that makes things a pain. The disk
by label stuff seems to have helped, but I wish it would prompt me to
continue if it can't find something in fstab instead of dropping into
problem mode. I think I should choose to say continue if I pulled a

man mount:
nofail Do not report errors for this device if it does not exist.

That might help with that particular problem. Else, I think it is done by a script, so perhaps the query is doable.
