I agree, however I'm thinking it would fit better with the new
thresholds syntax as it would allow selecting the criticality of the
alert as well.

My experience with this kind of flag arguments is that I often end up
patching the plugins because it either return WARNING when I want
CRITICAL or the other way round, and sometimes using negate also mess up
with other possible results.
