But the Trove classifiers are optional now, so I'm not at all sure it
should be turned into an error.  Leaving it as a warning seems
sufficient; someone who sees that the warning was caused by a typo
after all can still go to the web form and edit the set of classifiers
(or maybe re-register after correcting the metadata; I'm not sure if
that'll work).

Or are you proposing that the classifiers become required?  That's
going to cause a lot of packages to require work before new versions
can be released, which doesn't seem good to me.
