Topic: Error on hint absence

Just a general comment, I think these kinds of error messages are terrible:

Error: The default value for instance locality is currently "local" in a section and "global" otherwise, but is scheduled to change in a future release. [...]

I understand that the warning was changed into an error, but can't we have error messages sounding like actual errors? Just something like:

Error: Missing locality declaration
