This should not be marked as a leak.

	static class EventClass
		public static event EventHandler MyEvent;

	class ObjectClass
		static void DoStuff()
		public ObjectClass()
			EventClass.MyEvent += delegate {
				DoStuff ();

But it's still problematic since the event is likely to be subscribed multiple times.

I think warning in that case is ok.
