{{Caution}} and {{Warning}} templates broken!

@Shirayuki moved existing {{warning}} to {{warning/core}} on September 26 and the replacement invokes this via a module:

{{#invoke:Template translation|renderTranslatedTemplate|template=Warning/core|1={{{1|}}}}}

So perhaps this is more translation machinery that breaks when not invoked with the magic {{TNT|Actual template|blahblah}} incantation, which most mediawiki.org pages don't use.

The renamed warning/core "subtemplate" still works:

{{TNT|warning/core|Here is the text}} produces the correct:
Warning: Here is the text

so it must be something about Module:Template translation or its invocation.

@Shirayuki moved the /doc subpage down to Template:Warning/core/doc, but I think that was unintentional.

Bawolff reverted Template:Warning, so {{Warning|Here is the text}} works again:

Warning: Here is the text

but as of 10 November 2015, {{Caution|Here is the text}} is still broken:

Caution:
Peculiar Investor (talkcontribs)
Ciencia Al Poder (talkcontribs)

Because our templates are translated, although this seems the main reason for the break. Wikipedia templates are always in English, not translatable.
