Note that the events the API currently has are expected to be for the
actual error conditions, not for the warning ones - indicating that the
voltage is out of regulation for example.  If you're supporting warning
notifications as well you'll want to add more events (or possibly
another flag to munge in with the existing events to indicate that it's
a warning rather than an error).

Well, if these things are kicking in the hardware is in serious trouble
anyway so it's unclear what the system would be likely to do in
software, and also unclear how safe it is to rely on software to be able
to take that action given that it let things get into such a bad state
in the first place.
