Is there a relation to GCC's warning "-pedantic" that warns about using 
non-ECMA parts of the FCL or so ?

It should be possible to find a non-EMCA part used in the code.

Therefore, one can demand certain freenes of a software by the warnings:
    -Wecma    which checks if every parts is covered by the ECMA licence
Or developers of proprietary software might demand:

    -Wgpl       which both warns them (or ther) about (L)GPLed code.

The last one can save much trouble if you want your code to be partialy 
free, but not the one part that interests the others! :))

Adding the warning -Wecma to the classes of the system level would the 
people responsible for having an entirely free OS give better sleeps, 
and I think it could the the Java- C# -war from this side.
