I always considered WARNING stronger than CAUTION until
I began writing for the telephony industry. I do not know
where or when the Bell companies came up with these definitions
and priorities, but my listing is right out of their standards.

In a telephone office, every piece of equipment is redundant
except the lines going to subscribers. I guess that is the
reason they consider loss of service stronger than damage to
equipment. They specifically show examples of that indicate
they consider CAUTIONS a higher priority than WARNINGS.
