Can you clarify your concern?  If people know what they are doing, they should be able to silence the warning (or promote them to an error).

I don't see that as an issue.  We never promise that warnings will stay around forever.  Once a warning is deemed not to be useful anymore we should feel free to remove it.

No, and I don't think that would be the right approach anyway.  That seems counter to your concern about putting this warning under a flag in the first place.

If you really don't want driver warnings to be under a -W flag, then we should consider adding another diagnostic category to segregate them from other warnings.  Once we get all warnings under a -W flag, we'd like to change tablegen to reject warnings that are not in a diagnostic group.
