When there is a variable of the same in the dynamic scope, the
code will work. So, a warning seems reasonable.

Seems it's wanted. The compiler calls `byte-compile-log-warning' in
this case, which, unlike `byte-compile-warn', circumvents
Someone with more knowledge about the byte compiler might want to
I think you could get what you want by customizing `warning-levels',
(setcdr (cdr (assoc :error warning-levels))
(list (lambda () (error "Error!"))))
or so. I'm not sure if this is a good idea.
