> Wouldn't someone in the know PLEASE respond to this?

Thanks for your bug report. We are aware of the issue, but there has
been no decision what to do with it. There is also some disagreement
whether this is a bug or a feature.

> Produces warnings which are inappropriate:

Can you please explain what you mean by "inappropriate"? The warning
message certainly states a fact: the compiler choses the one
conversion sequence over the other, because of a confusing rule in the
C++ standard that it follows. Also, the compiler fully implements
standard C++ by selecting the specific conversion sequence.
