It sounds like proper behaviour respect the dead, probably tormented dwarves + even for practical reasons it is a good idea to put redead zombie inside coffin rather than leave it in a rubbish dump.

I would prefer that this behavior be optional. Even a medium sized undead siege can consume a non trivial amount of coffins. Having to devote an entire Z level to burial for dwarves who have never set foot in your fortress is a hassle.
