 Well, but does it actually fit all the variations of -mabi=/-march= that 
we implement?  I have no access to that tool, so I can't tell...

 Well, I'd rather warn about dangerous constructs.

 Finding out the difference to historic GNU binutils behaviour may be 
tough as for the corner cases the sets will be different depending on the 
version chosen.  If you're careful enough with that choice, you may 
actually end up with disjoint sets...  Trivial cases, like "la $2, 0" are 
likely to have always worked as expected. ;-)
