Enforcing rules in a strict manner is always a very painful process. 
We've done that over the years where it was absolutely necessary, e.g. 
making the theorem name space conform to the policies of any other name 
space (types, consts, etc.), despite all the complaints that were coming 
from it.  Now it is difficult to imagine that theorems would work 

Generally, I see a variety of levels of checking by the system, a spectrum 
between enforcement to encourgement: error, warning, hilighting. BTW, in 
Isabelle/jEdit a plain warning already looks quite prominent.
