I can see an argument for wanting to protect consumers from sloppy or malicious authors.

What would be that argument? Getting out of your way to _enforce_ some notion of what is good and what is not is a bit condescending to your potential users, no?

In any case, nothing beat good, old fashioned documentations :)

If it's so important for your project to protect the innocents from themselves, then "sandbox" your application/library/whatnot one way or another. But this seems to be a lost cause: if people want to shot themselves in the foot, they will, no matter what.
