If a regulator depends on another regulator that happens to be called

Since the deferral is not something fatal, nor even something the user
may need to be aware about, reduce the message to debug level.

Can we instead at least reduce it to WARN or INFO level then?

I have to explain over and over again that there's no problem when that message comes along ten times in a row. And it causes people to overlook the messages that really are errors.
