Yes. We've been bitten by this a few times, with mysterious crashes.
I'm not sure it even makes sense only to be a warning, but I guess
that's up to the C++ TC.
It's not always possible for the compiler to prove that flowing off
the end never happens, even if the program state ensures that it can't
(e.g. by all callers enforcing the function's preconditions
correctly). So making it ill-formed is deemed too draconian whenever
this gets discussed.
