Verbose not verbose enough?

(using nALFS-1.1.7)

When verbose in ~/.nALFSrc set to "no" I get no indication of a problem with 
some of my <textdump> tags. I set verbose to "yes" and I get:

W: Unknown element: filename

Ok that's a start and I'm glad I set verbose to 'yes' else I wouldn't have 
found out a problem until way later in the build process. Now, if it only 
would tell me where that problem occurs that'd be even better. A grep for 
filename shows that I've used <filename> instead of <file> in <textdump>, 
easily fixed.

It might be an idea though to tell the user where that problem is? And, 
shouldn't this be an error and show up even when verbose is set to "no"?
