I don't think this particular warning is useless at all. If I ask for a  
font combination that doesn't exist I would like to be informed about it.

One warning that is useless and which is going to be changed in the  
upcoming LaTeX 2007 release is when a math font changes encoding. This  
happens for instance when using the fourier package.
