Instead of an exception, raise a warning, so the file is saved and the
user can decide to correct the error.

I don't know if this is a good pratice, but I have some GenBank files
provided by the JGI/DOE with locus names longer than 16 chars, so I
guess that providing a warning to the user instead of a complete
failure could be better.
