No, it's not a syntax error, any more than

I'm fine to throw an error instead of a warning, so that the output will say
the file failed.  But it's a music error, not a syntax error.

Thanks for your example - I think a false fingering is not a bigger
mistake than, say,
a bar check error as in your example, so as the latter gives a warning
and proceeds,
I think we should handle the fingering equally, so a warning is ok.

If your argument is to throw a warning and proceed, how would you prefer to
handle the bad fingering request?  Would you prefer to leave the note out of
the tab, or to put it in the tab with a different fingering?
In the hypothetical case that the user wants a zero as a fingering on the wrong place (for whatever reason), I think that giving a warning, calculating the right tab number
and still using the (wrong) fingering would be the the best approach.
In this case, when someone wanted to play this piece of music, it will sound right, and
he will probably ignore the zero.
