In my case, clearly Emacs is not happy with a non-existing file--at least if it is a PDF file meant to be viewed by docview. Option 1 could have "org-docview-open" throw an error for a non-existing file, I suppose. You describe option 2 as risking existing configs. I am uninformed on such an issue.
