These are Notes as it may not be a serious issue or may be a false 
positive, nevertheless, we like to get clean packages to CRAN.

WARNINGs and ERRORs will never be accepted.

The policies clearly say that significant Notes have to be addressed.
The only Note that is always acceptable is the CRAN maintainer Note 
about the package maintainer's address. All other Notes should be fixed 
generally or need manual attention in case of the really very few
