We are talking about warnings here, so I don't see any slippery slope
Except for one key criterion: if we add a warning where there are likely

is used for many projects..
I am not sure what you mean by unsuppressable. As has been pointed out
in this thread, you can always recode to avoid the ambiguity/warning,
and indeed such rewriting is probably good general practice.
