   Wouldn't adding NoError in front of the enum work for this case?
You don't need the explicit values, and their would not change!

   TDiagnosticSeverity = ( NoError { will be 0},
			  Error {will stay equal to 1},
                           Warning {will stay equal to 2},
                           Information  {will stay equal to 3},
                           Hint {will stay equal to 4}

Not a general solution, but a very simple one in that specific case!
