I think, maintainers of each library are free to choose their own policy
with regard to warnings. You can contact Boost.Phoenix authors for their
opinion on this, or create a Trac ticket (preferably, with a patch).
Personally, I feel reluctant to maintain hard no-warnings guarantee in
Boost.Log, simply because it's too tedious and most warnings on higher
levels are bogus anyway and trying to avoid them only makes the code worse.
I try to keep the code silent on normal levels, however.
