-1 from me;  I don't really see that that would improve the documentation.  Maybe that's just me, but I expect reference documentation to be clean, and uncluttered with too many warnings.  All the necessary information is already there, and adding extra notes like this just increases the total number of words to be read without adding new information.

In a tutorial, that would be different ... :-)

Leaving this open---others may have different takes on this.
