Inadequate warning?

Warnings are wonderful things, but at times, they are inadequate, whether because they don't give you time to react, they don't give you a way to react, or they warn about too little.  One of my favorite recent warnings is shown below as I test my rendering goals on a two versions of that same table, one nested inside a single cell table bit otherwise unchanged.  
 
Now, ask yourself, doesn't the sign above pretty much describe the process below (especially the second table)?  Too little, too late.

Message as it arrived in GMail.  Particularly note the second part with the nested table
