It also happens to me to mistype a buffer/file name, and I like the
current behaviour better than the old one. However I think it would make
a better habit to assign something like C-RET or M-RET to "force create
a new buffer/file", and always present a y-or-n-p for plain RET when the
entered buffer/file-name does not exist.

Also, maybe auto-insert can advise the y-or-n-p used there to something
that asks for:
y,e (empty, no auto-insert),
n (cancel),
a,i (for auto-insert), 
s (select which template to insert), 
? (help).
