It seems to me that requiring the e.p. field in a FEN to be only present if there actually is a legal e.p. capture just puts a completely needless burden on the routine that converts board positions to FENs. No information is lost by putting a superfluous e.p. square. A possible reader for which the presence of an actual capture makes any difference almost certainly will have the intelligence and information to figure out for itself if the capture exists, if it wants to know that.

FENs are designed as a tool to make life easy. So I think the existing standard made the good choice.
