What is the warning you want to give out, in which situations/conditions 
and is there any way/option/parameter to override it on the commandline 
in a automated/scripted way?

flashrom -r bios.bin -usingoutdatedversionatmyownrisk

So, does it make sense to warn if all operations already succeed?
If reads even already fail, then upgrading definately is in order, 
hoping flashrom code has progressed far enough meanwhile to succesfully 
perform the read.
