The Validator's primary job is to help better make better content. Here
the Validator points out that if you always set background-color and
color together, the style sheet is more likely to interact well with
e.g. user style sheets, which is considered a good thing.

If you want the Validator to not tell you that you would have to argue
that setting color and background-color together does not help make the
style sheets better, or that this case is unimportant compared to other
issues yet the presentation of this particular warning is such that the
other warnings are more difficult to follow.

It does not really help if you explain that you don't care much about
the warning, since in that case you can turn warnings off or simply
ignore this warning.
