SQL:2011 gives the syntax of a SELECT list element as

    <derived column> ::=
      <value expression> [ <as clause> ]
    <as clause> ::=
      [ AS ] <column name>

There is not a lot of room for argument there.  And we got a lot of
complaints back when we didn't support omitting AS.

If we're going to get into the business of emitting warnings for
required-by-SQL-spec constructs, I'm not sure that this one is
where I'd start.  Unqualified outer references seem to catch a
lot more people.
