Thats a point. But then, the current mode should at least be checkable
in TS, so one change configuration depending on the mode.

Only the exact details are not. It is vital for an integrator to be
warned that something could go wrong in the (near) future and might need
attention. It is his choice what he does with the warning - he might
investigate (if he is a dev as well), open a ticket, ignore the message
or switch these messages off. But these things need to be done
consciously, so he is aware that there could be problem in the future.
