In many cases your intent is to cluster DTC later after the SQL Install so that it is failover with the SQL Cluster.
Instead of raising a warning, ask if MSDTC is going to be installed, and how. 

This warning is not correct. it is only correct if the intent was to have DTC clustered prior to SQL. which in most cases is not the best solution.

so I'm adding the MSDTC to an existing CLuster resource, in this case SQL Server, and that way I do not need a dedicated LUN

Triage confirmed that we currently do not have any plans to incorporate DTC scenarios into our workflow. We are closing this as won't fix. Thank you for your suggestion.
