So, if we want to emit a warning, it should not be when "there's some

How about if we reverse the letters as well as issue a warning? That is, instead of merely displaying "ces" for a reversed "sec", we also display the individual characters reversed (so it would display like "ↄɘƨ"). On a graphical display we should be able to do that reasonably well, and it'd be a strong visual cue.
