Personally I would say yes. It is a little annoying to have to scroll  
very many warnings before one can see messages concerning formatting  

Maybe you remember an old discussion about Polyglossia and French  
punctuation, and this remark of yours:

\XeTeXinterchartoks does not currently apply across font changes, or
anything else that interrupts a run of text. Hmmmmm. Maybe that
should change...

Could XeteX's behaviour be changed in this respect, if it has no  
undesirable side effect?

Best wishes,
