So how about a name like "emphasis" instead of warning?

Or alternatively, add _both_ "emphasis" and "warning", and by default
have warning inherit from emphasis (the idea being that users could make
"warning" more obnoxious if they wanted to, while "emphasis" would
continue to be more acceptable for normal usage).

"Though they may have different meanings, the cries of 'Yeeeee-haw!' and
 'Allahu akbar!' are, in spirit, not actually all that different."
