This is one of them. You're asking for a feature that violates the
philosophy of the language. Classes of errors lead to dialects of the
language. That would be a terrible outcome. We want every Go
programmer to use the same language.

The topic of warnings vs. errors has been discussed many times on the
list. It will probably come up many more. But the decision, which in
time you may come to appreciate, will not change.
