When attempting to determine the correct usage of "first-page-number" in a
(fairly complex) project, I first found that it did nothing at all - even
with absurd inputs (e.g. first-page-number = asdf) it changed nothing and
the compiler carried on silently - no errors, warnings, or other
indications of mistakes. I was able to figure out how to use it correctly
(although the documentation is slightly sparse), but I think there should
be some sort of notification when a function is misplaced or otherwise

Do you have an example?

There are lots and lots of ways in which you can do things that
don't really make sense, including things that don't make sense
with vanilla LilyPond but start to make sense if you put some Scheme
code to support them, so such a warning is not feasible in general,
although it can be possible in some specific instances.
