Is it an oversight or a limitation that for the react/prop-types rule, no warning is emitted for missing nested properties.

For example, with:

propTypes: {
  a: React.PropTypes.shape({
    b: React.PropTypes.shape({
      c: React.PropTypes.func

I get no warning when I use this.props.a.b.d.

Thank you!

If this is something we want to add support for. I fiddled with it a bit tonight and I got something working for quite a few nested cases.
It checks for shape arrayOf objectOf oneOfType and instanceOf.
I need to do some additional testing, but so far it look pretty solid. I can event do checks like
this.props.a[0][someVar].e and give warning about e if the propTypes are

propTypes = {
  a: React.PropTypes.arrayOf(
        b: React.PropTypes.string

Let me know if you want me to polish it.

In case you're interested to see what I did so far

Wow. That's definitely something we're interested in. I did not dive in your code yet but it seems great so far.

You can polish it, I will be very happy to merge it :)
