I disagree. It is actively being suggested on #gentoo, and we already
document features that could (or even will) result in RESO:WONTFIX, like
using ~arch (both for a small set of packages as well as the entire system).

I would rather have a <warn> in place then that sais it will hinder support
during bug reports and might result in RESO:WONTFIX unless the user removes
the specific settings and rebuilds with the system ones.

Not documenting is, in my opinion, a lesser solution than documenting and
saying why it is bad.
