Is that a good idea? If it fell back seamlessly then you would not get major bug reports (LP: #1520537) and a fix so quickly. Just a long slow process of people wondering "why is this slower than it used to be?".

We experience the same with Unity7 right now. The fallback to software rendering is so transparent (and performs so well) that many people can't immediately notice when it has happened. So they don't report a bug and just endure lower performance.
