This brings up an interesting point I wanted to address with Dimitris.

First, I'm don't like to use an admonition for a different intention.
That is, if we use the "warning" admonition style, we want it to be an
actual warning.  This is a "note".

What I wanted to address was the slight repetitive nature of "warning"
and "bigger warning" and the other admonitions missing.  In DocBook XML,
we use a set that is fairly standard for technical content across
industries:  note, tip, caution, important, warning.

Those are in order of alarm, and usage can be described like this:

"Note: There is a cliff around the bend ahead."

"Tip: Don't stand by the edge of a cliff if you don't want to fall off."

"Caution: Cliff edges are slippery."

"Important:  You are standing too close to the edge of the cliff."

"Warning:  You are falling off the cliff, prepare for impact."
