Given that doing so results in at least one machine being broken, it seems not. But yes, it's possible to reliably determine which ASPM states have been enabled.

PCIe, power management, and problematic BIOSes

So on the system in question, the BIOS leaves the system in a broken, contradictory state that has a statistically decent chance to limp on long enough to boot without crashing, but unless the OS fixes the power management state pronto, a crash is a given.

Words fail me.
