In Drupal 6, a REQUIREMENT_ERROR in an implementation of hook_requirements() displayed the following warning
all over at /admin:
One or more problems were detected with your Drupal installation. Check the status report for more information.
In Drupal 7, this useful message is only displayed in the configuration screen. Is that by design? I don't think many people necessarily hang out at admin/config all the time. This message should be promoted back to /admin. In any case, the hook_requirements is inaccurate as it claims this message is displayed "on the the administration overview page".
Fix the documentation, and potentially promote the warning to /admin
