I haven't tried it but Erik suggested in a reply to Dan a few months 
ago, that is should be possible:

I think it would just annoy people and make it impossible to see the 
errors. We'll need to continue to make progress on the warnings and I 
think can only enable them when they are down to a manageable number, 
ideally 0. Stuart lead the last few campaigns and may have ideas or plans.
