Yes, totally.

Even for Jack-ChucK being unable to poll the Jack server for the rate
should likely result in at least a warning. We have seen quite a few
reports about that old package that was meant for Jack, yet
distributed towards people apparently unaware of the need to start the
Jack server.

None of this is very hard; the Jack interface is quite well
documented, hardest might be writing error messages that cover what
might be wrong in a friendly way.
