The check on compatibility of a set newgrf's, now is executed when starting a new game. It would be nice, this check could be performed when you choose your own set of newgrf's before saving the set. Maybe by a new button "Check"
This task depends upon

Impossible, as newgrf may be incompatible with game settings (usually climate)

I do not agree with statement. Then it even is possible. The final report can list for which climate the complete set will function or not. I assume now the test also is made against the game settings.

It's not impossible, just a lot of work due to the current implementation. Having said that: it's a wish of multiple developers to implement this, so eventually it'll get done. Just don't count on it anytime soon.
