Comment (by dd32):

 I think I'd prefer to just disable robots handling if pretty permalinks
 are disabled

 Pretty permalinks are more of a "Is some kind of rewriting enabled?"
 switch, there's a reason we don't enable rewrites by default - not all
 server configurations allow it (especially non-Apache servers) and some
 even cause HTTP 500 errors when mod_rewrite is attempted to be used but
 isn't supported.

 Until #6481 (enable pretty permalinks by default) is fixed I don't think
 we can support the direction requested here.
