The united atom forcefields I know, *do* contain all polar hydrogens (obviously)
as well as 'aromatic' hydrogens, most notably on aromatic rings. On unsaturated
aliphatic chains they are usually not included, but they could easily be added
in analogous manner to the aromatic hydrogens. That would save you a lot of work
(topology writing and parameter definition & optimization) for the remaining
non-polar, saturated hydrogens (which are the majority, usually).
