I guess it's not a problem. It's just that up until now, I've been
trying to keep them interchangeable.

I don't think there's a need for a warning, as long as it's easy to
identify the situation from logs, starting from the default output. It
should be pretty obvious: a failure to instantiate a builtin WIC clsid
followed by a d3dx fixme.
