Since I've come across multiple instances of this perception of theirs
before, perhaps it would be a good thing to educate them to the
distinction between error, warning, and informational messages.

I don't think so, as the admin might expect the device to get a
driver re-bound. At the very least the warning should be issued
the first time through, but masking subsequent occurrences may
turn out more complicated than is warranted.
