As I see it, neither position is a "problem", just a choice. A decision
has been made to force one particular choice on the user community instead
of allowing the choice to be made based on the system requirements.

Make it an option that can be set in both sshd-config and ssh-config so
that both client and server operators have the choice to never lose data
or to always disconnect, damn the data, full speed ahead :-)
