I still fail to see the value of this. If anyone wants to make a warning  
as a sub-property of a description, they are welcome to, but I don't see  
why we should. It just adds complexity that helps people to make mistakes,  
something that seems like an anti-goal to me.

So I am opposed to warning, except as a sub-type for description. (The  
only value I see there is that fewer people will try to use it as a  
result, although some obviously will).
