A 2-sided argument is pointless. I would not have posted this if I knew only
1 person would get involved in the discussion.

Doesn't anybody else have an opinion on this? Obviously we know my point of
view and David's. I find it impossible to believe nobody else has anything
to say.

By that logic, no warning should ever be issued for anything.

Warnings are not errors. The validator can produce errors and still
produce the "Your code is valid" message.
