I suspect the only issue is that there are lots of things that people would want to have as optional warnings, and it might be hard to justify why this optional warning is more important than other optional warnings all of which would benefit the user. In previous conversations, I believe "can it be linted?" has been proposed as the question to be asked for this kind of thing.

I haven't paid attention very closely to most of these conversations and I did vote against an explicit self requirement.
