For any other syntax element, I'd agree. But #error is _supposed_ to be 
fatal. What is a non-gnu compiler going to do: not ignore it (which would 
be no worse than #warning), not die (who cares if it's a syntax error 
rather than supporting #error), but rather something that produces a 
broken binary?
