To approach that sacrament without the intention of being absolved has got to be sacrilege; it mocks the sacrament just as much as a false confession would!
The CIC specifically regulates that situation, and says that the priest is bound to the seal of confession, even if no absolution can be given. It does not say that the penitent should not go to confession in such a situation, much less that he would commit sacrilege.

When Archbishop Lefebvre was missionary in Africa, he often had to deal with polygamy. He wanted to make those people feel as welcome and included in parish life as he could, but of course could not minister the sacraments to them. I think the situation today is in many cases comparable.
