Well of the things you listed, Phoenix *requires* all except 
verifyServiceNotALifecycle (so that could be a warning) but in most of the 
other contains many of points could be warnings. So the only thing that can 
possibly be a warning is verifyServiceNotALifecycle and a generic warning 
vs violation seems overkill for one case. If we put things in like 
component should not extend Component interface that would be a warning but 
I tried to avoid anything like that.

There is little best-practice enforced besides making sure the service 
interface does not extend lifecycle interfaces. (And I think that enforcing 
that is a good thing)
