Conceptually, I agree that these diagnostics should happen in the front
end.  But it seems infeasible to share that functionality between the
various front ends, so I think it needs to happen later.

The gimplifier is certainly no less appropriate a place for diagnostics
than the expander.  I think it probably makes sense to give these warnings
while lowering the switches.
