I thought about that for my lint program and decided it'd be too
annoying to report local bindings that shadow, but I did set up for
top-level shadows of core or imported stuff to be warned.

An example annoyance for me would be "symbol" which is an undocumented
core binding but I regularly use as the name of a local variable.  (A
variable which, not surprisingly, contains a symbol :).
