I don't think type-checking is required, IIRC all module-qualification
occurs before type-checking.  What does happen however, is that the
interface files are generated before all module-qualification takes
places; in particular module-qualification of clauses (which is how
assertions treated by most of the frontend) doesn't take place until
after the interface files have been generated.
