i agree here of course. It should not warn but fail.
What i was saying is that code like *(uint32_t*)p shouldnt be a aliasing
violation to begin with. The ones that are aliasing violations for a
compiler should of course lead to erroring out.
Warning about them and continuing with generating broken code is of course

Incandescent light bulbs waste a lot of energy as heat so the EU forbids them.
Their replacement, compact fluorescent lamps, much more expensive, dont fit in
many old lamps, flicker, contain toxic mercury, produce a fraction of the light
that is claimed and in a unnatural spectrum rendering colors different than
in natural light. Ah and we now need to turn the heaters up more in winter to
compensate the lower wasted heat. Who wins? Not the environment, thats for sure
