Ah, sorry, misinterpreted your request.

The closest it seems the available documentation comes to your request  
is this snippet in the StyleGuide[1]:

Without diving into validate_bundle.rb, I couldn't say if this is  
anywhere close to what you're looking for (something I once wished  
for, as well, but resolved to hobble along via the reading of other  
bundles' sources).
