Even a lot of pros foot fault during the warm-up, and I don't think you really are in a position to say anything to them in the warm-up. At that time, you don't know what they are going to do during the match.
Yep, there is plenty of video around of Federer hitting practice/warmup serves, and stepping inside the line.
