I would like the opportunity to get warnings for short_open_tags.

It would be much easier for developers to rearrange their code from using short_open_tags to not using it.

Something like 


would be great!

This feature would require an RFC[1], so I'm suspending this ticket.

Thank you for your interest in PHP and for submitting a feature request. Please be aware that due to the magnitude of change this request requires, it would be necessary to discuss it on PHP Internals list ( as an RFC. Please read the guide about creating RFCs here:
If you haven't had experience with writing RFCs before, it is advised to seek guidance on the Internals list ( and/or solicit help from one of the experienced developers. 

Please to not consider this comment as a negative view on the merits of your proposal - every proposal which requires changes of certain magnitude, even the very successful and widely supported ones, must be done through the RFC process. This helps make the process predictable, transparent and accessible to all developers.
