      IMO the improvement may be: write autocommand script to cope with this?

      i.e. automatically remove all the ^M if a buffer opend with ff=unix ?

      In the Unix world, the program should provide mechanism, not policy. So it
      is unlikely that the feature be supplied inside vim executable, but the
      run-control scripts could do the job if you wish.
