I would agree with zakath on this one, else it is way to easy to abuse it. What bonecrusher & akinaro have highlighted is already very hard to catch unless the player is stupid enough to post his screenshot in a match report... but you would get banned if caught in any competitive Soldat league I know of.
A good portion of the competitive players in soldat are using or have used hacks in the past. And you worry about sceneries?
Come on don't break modding just for this.

Btw the displaying of missing gostek- and weapons-gfx could get changed to only first time if game starts and not everytime you come in the main menu. Its very annoying because some weapons or gostek-gfx (wich i downloaded here for my team2 and weapons changer) no need all files like a kap or a shell.

I think the black rectangles are ok, if you are missing scenery you should know it.
Hiding things will make it harder for mappers to find and fix missing sceneries.

I don't see how a black square ruins modding, as shoozza has pointed out it makes sure the player is aware he is missing a scenery and can go fix it. How does a black square break modding?

I thought you were implying that it should be made impossible to customize sceneries. I misunderstood.

maybe instead of black, you could use semitransparent?
and with text?
It doesn't cover map so much, and text is enough annoying to fix lost graphic, so we have 50/50 of current ideas.
I know that game stretch graphic, but still it would be semitransparent and in smaller sceneries text would made it even darker.

[Example with text and 70% black transparent.]

Nice idea. Combine it with Viral's one. And it should make the life of climbers missing sceneries a lot easier.
