A warning would be fine, as long as the server treats the other items.
An error would block the process.

For example, if we have 2 pypi servers, one that deals with 1..n categories,
one with A..Z,
we could have a package with such classifiers:

classifiers = ['category 1', 'category A', 'category 2']

Each server could pick the categories it knows.
