Sure, if nothing like this exists today, it could become a challenging
task. What exactly should be checked is something to be defined. Another
compromise (between features and implementation effort) might be required.
But before specifying this in detail, I'd like to hear voices, if this
could become an acceptable compromise at all. After all, I could imagine
that a remarkable amount of purists would reject it anyway.
