I don't think we "frequently" add things to -Wall or -Wmost.  We do 
frequently add warnings that are unconditionally default-on, but the 
have a conventional meaning that we don't generally touch.  What 
warnings are you thinking of that are not default-on but which are 
in a group like -Wall or -Wmost?
