If I understand you, you're talking about adding a "IgnoreIfUnknown" directive
or similar to ssh_config, and have ssh ignore any option on that list if it
doesn't understand it, but process normally if it does understand it? eg:

IgnoreIfUnknown RekeyLimit GssKeyEx

This seems to be mostly an issue for $HOME/.ssh/config when homedirs are shared
between hosts.  The simple solution is: don't use the new options until all the
machines have been upgraded, or if you really need them then put them in the
host-specific /etc/ssh/ssh_config.
