OK, I finally gave in and took a look at the Phabricator source code.

Short answer: It's hard-coded, you can't disable the check

Medium answer: It's pretty easy to disable, just uncomment the two
'throw new ArcanistUsageException' lines in
src/workflow/ArcanistBaseWorkflow.php which complain about
staging/committing before proceeding

Long answer: Arcanist lint will still run on your working tree, so you
are going to get spurious lint results.  Oof!
