without the 'force to take' strategy it can become very difficult to do anything in certain situations and you'll get to stalemate, no one can move positions.

That may be true for some players, but in my experience stalemates are very rare. Just think it would be a nice option :)

mutually agree to it with your opponent beforehand?

I do sometimes, but when me and the person i'm playing with speak different languages, it can be difficult.

First I have to say, I have only played Russian checkers (I don't know if my suggestion is applicable to other versions). I would like to suggest to make an option to force to take the pieces. I think the refutation sometimes slow down the game. The people are trying to make an alternative move, if they see that to take would lead to a bad situation. This lead to unnecessary moves.
