That's something that will definitely change with the new threshold
syntax, but that's not around the corner yet (we barely finished the

Meanwhile you can set very high threshold, and/or use negate to change
the status codes so that WARNING and CRITICAL return OK instead.

BTW in the upcoming release (and in current snapshots) negate can change
