Currently the D compiler catches several bugs that are caught only by

Full stop. It should be other way around - remove all such arguable
warnings from compiler to dedicated lint tool and never add any single
one to compiler.

I'd say a good static code analysis require a full compiler frontend and I see no reasons why there can't be such thing in dmd as it is just as required as profiler, unittesting or documentation generation which are already in. Of course it has nothing to do with compiler warnings and is a separate thing. But looks like people aren't interested in it as enhancement request 9811 [1] still has no votes or discussion.
