No, fine.

Yes.  Have run-parts --test list the script and then when you run it
for real produce a message saying `failed to execute such-and-such,
Exec format error'.

This is analogous to what it should do if the #! line lists a missing
interpreter, or the executable format isn't supported by the kernel,
or something similar.
