That could possibly be added. Though, any parse I write for that, will
not be a real shell that parses the full shell syntax...

How can it? It has no idea what commands do or do not exist on
whatever system you end up installing the package on... it could check
if they exist currently on the system it's running on, which (probably
99.9% of the time) is the same one you install it on for real... but
requiring all the dependencies for a package to be installed just to
lint that package seems kinda onerous.
