 Outside the scope of this ticket, I think. There are other tickets that
 discuss this. Basically, it is difficult to offer a branded warning as it
 requires the theme to cooperate. This was also in the context of, say, a
 warning for if the comment was blank. If you're trying to post to
 something for which you don't have permissions and have to modify what is
 posted to do so, you deserve a wp_die().
