Yes, at this point I think the best we can do is to make sure we get good warnings.
I'd suggest that we can attach a warning to a method in each instance.
So when using length on a tuple we'd get a warning.
I don't even want to upgrade ghc to get the FTP until such a warning is in place (we are still on 7.8).

How about a feature that allows GHC to warn whenever a certain instance is used? That way, if you don't like a certain instance, you can put {-# FORBIDINSTANCE Foldable ((,) a) #-} in your modules and get warnings whenever that instance is used.
