	tlmgr update --list
will tell you about "forcibly removed" if there are. If a collection
is installed, all of the depending package *need* to be installed,
otherwise tlmgr will warn you.

Well, of course, by parsing the output, as you suggested, but
I admit that there is no indication in the output that tells
you that a depending package is missing.

Hope that helps
