When it is required that code compile without triggering warning X, in
effect the C++ language has been changed to no longer allow whatever is
triggering X.

That's OK, if X is virtually always a programming problem. But if it is
sometimes perfectly good code, then I wouldn't want to see that warning

No. Only enable warnings for conditions which are actually errors the
overwhelming majority of the time.
