Yes and no. A DCP contails hash-values to verify the integrity of the
content (from a binary point of view) as well as various references to
the sound, picture and subtitle tracks. The essence tracks also must
obbey some strict encoding rules and therefore a package could be
verified in theory.
Nevertheless playout servers (Dolby, Doremi, etc) tent to be sensitive
to other things as well. It's not because they are not DCI compliant,
it's more because of the specifications not being strict at all levels.
Typically some metadata that is tagged as optional may be vital to some
servers and if not present, the ingest process may fail partially or
totally. Please also bear in mind that not all servers in the world are
up-to-date with the software.... and issues may occur then.
The ultimate test is the actual ingest on real servers...
