I think that you assume that the warning is reasonable and easy to
fix, as with most warnings that could be silenced with casts. A lot of
times, fixing such warnings is common sense. In that case, just a note
to the library developer would be enough to have it fixed.
But you can't generalize from this, to "all warnings should be silenced."
