Should fsck honour "failok" in fstab as mount does?

mount ignores failed mount attempts when "failok" is specified as an option 
in /etc/fstab allowing the boot process to continue.

However, fsck does not, and I think it should.  It shouldn't mark an FS as 
clean, obviously, just not drop into single-user mode - let mount do that 
when it tries to mount an FS without the "failok" option.
