the trees are getting barer, the birds hungrier, and sony a77 has lost a feather as well :

it's lost the ability to prevent shooting without card! It used to be near release without lens!

Are you sure it was ever there? It wasn't there in my A65 and several people have complained that the option disappeared with the SLTs. I don't remember if my A100 had it. There is a No Card warning that flashes in the viewfinder that is hard to miss however so what happened to you has never happened to me but having the option to turn it off and on with on being a default certainly is a good idea.
