Is there really a nontrivial cost to a one-time warning, the first time a
window attribute is resolved this way?  (Warning once per ID would be nice,
but warning once per page load serves the purpose.)  It sounds like a
single branch at most.

I'm a web developer, and I get annoyed at not being told when I'm doing
something obviously bad, so you'll have to pick which group to annoy:
people who want to write reliable webpages, or those who don't.
