Additional features for /etc/rc.d/fsck

I have many servers with using gjournal.
Sometimes, after unexpected reboot, booting OK, but, filesystem have 
error. If I run fsck -y manually - all OK.
But, for some servers I do not have physical access, and check '/' and 
some another filesystems - impossible.
I modify /etc/rc.d/fsck, and add 2 new options to rc.conf
HP$ grep fsck /etc/rc.conf

It's required background_fsck="NO" in rc.conf

May be include it in source three? Very useful.
