Yes I think they are very useful, though I wouldn't suggest blindly
fixing things based on the reports since I suspect that at least in
some cases we have wrong ordinals and this will cause complaints about
the wrong functions. We should definitely strive to make the checks
pass as much as possible, but doing that will require a careful
analysis of each case.

Another very useful test would be the ability that you mentioned to
correlate with the MS import libs too, but that's not trivial to do.
