Follow-up Comment #8, bug #62776 (project groff):

[comment #6 comment #6:]
> Also I think the technique you describe, which I have not seen in the wild,
might be too clever by half.  Better to say in English in a comment, "This
macro is intended to cause no breaks.", no?

I tend to prefer actual code than comments.  Comments can get out of date. 
Code not (or well, it does, but you would notice more easily).

About the warning, I think I prefer having it.  Disabling a warning if you
don't care is easy.  But if the warning is not there, you can't add it :)
