Please do keep it optional.

PolicyKit is actively unhelpful when you're configuring a remote
server which doesn't have a desktop, or you don't have access to it's

It's also unhelpful when you're trying to script something.  The last
thing you want a test harness script to do is prompt the user.

I much prefer command line errors in both those cases :-)
