-Wimplicit-fallthrough=3 is stricter and maps to -Wextra, hence its
choice. GCC's levels were chosen based on the existing linters, static
analyzers, etc. The patterns are unlikely to change (see the gcc
man-page).

Clang doesn't recognize anything in C mode (hopefully this will be
fixed in the future[1]).

As long as one of the compilers is able to check this, we'll avoid the
bugs associated with this mis-pattern. Gustavo's efforts here have
found kind of a lot of bugs, so I think it's worth a little churn to
add these (and make minor adjustments to existing comments).
