I added some more documentation about the form of warning IDs in this changeset (http://hg.savannah.gnu.org/hgweb/octave/rev/15628a84a4fa).

The documentation on warning_ids does not explicitly mention that they must contain a colon. The documentation in 12.2.2 actually gives an incorrect example

warning ("non-negative-variable",
              "'a' must be non-negative.  Setting 'a' to zero.");

In that case only

warning: non-negative-variable

is displayed, and not the message itself.
