I would say no. This doesn't add anything.

Identifying that a module possesses introductions at some level does not 
indicate that it possesses all of the introductions at that level. 
Accordingly, knowing that a module possesses introductions still 
requires checking for non-empty contents in order to know that a 
particular introduction is non-empty.

This is along the lines of the request for a Scope .conf entry, which 
was already rejected. Whatever solution is used for that case can also 
be used for introductions.
