No matter if multiple values are desired or not, the editor warning
about such a thing *already in the database* will trigger users to break
stuff, not improve. A warning presented to everyone should ideally only
point things out which are trivial to fix for a mapper (without breaking
valid use cases). In the case of multiple values, I would dispute the
fix being trivial.

So I would vote for not warning the users too much
