One option OPT_W* may control different text messages. So, it has to
be attached to each different text message.
Even if each unique call to warning had its own bit, I find confusing to say:
warning: 'd' is uninitialized [-Wuninitialized]
[...loads of other stuff scrolling the above line up...]
warning: 'j' is uninitialized
warning: 'z' may be uninitialized [-Wuninitialized]
If you think the above is nice and trivial to implement, go ahead.

That depends how you understand "more than once". It is attached to
each diagnostic. I understand that what Gabriel proposes is to attach
it only to the first diagnostic with the same text.
