I think this is probably a good idea.  What "too out-of-whack" is, I
don't know - maybe 5:1? 10:1?  (or vice-versa, obviously).  I'm pretty
sure that somewhere in the docs it mentions that a balanced set of data
is good, but I don't imagine many people actually read that bit, so
simply pointing out what is good once they are going wrong will probably
help a lot.  At the very least it might help people fix the problem
themselves, rather than using the list ;)
