Warning flags are much different than dialect flags.  

Maybe we will get by without them, but there are plenty of legitimate reasons that different people want the compiler to tell them about different things in their code.  An alternate possibility might be to put this kind of thing in an external tool that can be invoked as part of the build system.  

Regardless of implementation, I think we are likely to see tools of some kind that integrate with the build system and highlight different issues for different teams.
