Yes, but IMO it'd be better to rework that into a more general mechanism
that allows to check if a feature is supported supported. We could also
hook into apt/dpkg there and only update this state on actual changes
to the installed packages.

But IMO something for the future, for now warning on apply is fine enough
IMO, if we switch those warnings to using PVE::RESTEnvironment::log_warn
the task will also be marked orange in the UI task list, so it would be
quite visible for the admin.
