The question is where should this information be most appropriate to
appear.  In my view, this should be in the documentation (highlighted
etc), not in the Emacs mini-buffer!  I don't know enough texi (any at
all, actually) so cannot suggest a patch.  However, I would suggest that
the warning that is in the code be moved into the entry for org-crypt.el
in the info manual. Or, as originally proposed, the warning in the code
could be wrapped in a customisable variable but this seems like overkill
to me.

One quickly becomes inured to messages that appear every time you use a
tool.  At best, they are simply ignored; at worst, they become annoying,
such as in this case.  I'm not complaining critically as it is trivial
to fix for my own use.

Just my 2ยข!
