User warnings when editing objects should be more specific

(1) Presently, Users group user can edit user-contributed objects of non-restricted types (T349082). When a user switches to the Edit mode, the warning says: "You are editing the function definition page. Only users with special permissions can change the definition of the function."
Since editing non-restricted objects types is available to all users, the warning is not applicable anymore?
