Adding New Parameter won't fail the tests

It's a pain internally for our team that when we introduced new parameter to an existing keyword tests, all tests that are reference to it are failing. Often times, the new parameters are added for some particular tests and not for all the tests. 


We would like the existing tests to adapt the new parameter and just default it to whatever the default value is set to that parameter. That way the existing tests won't fail and we don't have to change every tests that are reference to that test with new parameter. We have daily CI automated tests and the # of tests are getting bigger. In the long term, this will be very hard to maintain and prevent us from making a change like this as it messes up everything.
