We still have not quite worked out what the dangers to authentication 
are if confusion arises, other than saying that it is confusing and
crackers always attempt to use confusion to reach their aims. But of course
not all deviance from strictness is equally problematic.  

So at this stage it may be better I think to flag a warning rather than
an error. The fact that you notice this is pretty good.
