It was a long time ago and I don't remember if was a discussion about
.warning directive. As I can see only .error directive was documented in
Porters' Handbook as a harmful.
But I'd like remind .warning directive pollutes stderr and discouraged
portupgrade which was designed to catch messages from stderr and rises
Now there are a few ports (ImageMagic and GhostScript*) where the
directive was appeared. I think the ports should be fixed to use
ECHO_MSG to display the warnings.
