I don't see this as a major problem. Most competent developers will  
be aware that this is only a partial check, especially if we warn  
about this in text and descriptions. There will always be aspects of  
programming languages that aren't automatically checked, even though  
they are machine checkable in principle. This is just a question of  
where to draw the line.
