So long as it was an option, I think it would be a good idea.
Of course, as a workaround, you can restore as a different name, then issue a drop on the database you're overwriting and a rename on the restored database. Wouldn't be "instant", but since the restore itself wouldn't be instant, I think it's a valid way to handle it.
