This is why users do open BZ if they would like to see some enhancement.

Normally cache is integral part of a volume - so it's partially missing - 
whole volume is considered to be garbage.

But in 'writethrough' mode there could be likely possible better recovery.

Of course this case needs usability without --force.

So please open  RFE BZ for this case.
