On a document level, it's easy to be draconian. Simply don't provide 
any xinclude:fallback elements. Then a missing resource will be 
fatal. The current draft doesn't provide any means to implement this 
at the parser level though. This is  all new functionality in the 
recently released CR, so if you don't like this make a comment to the 
working group. (Personally, I think anything as major as this should 
require a return to working draft status. Stuff like this should not 
be added at CR.)
