Not directly so far. - The source file “commands.mli” is not needed
for the generation of the object module “commands.cmo” in the final use case.

But I used make rule specifications for a moment to express the simple
dependency chain “mli ⇒ cmi ⇒ ml ⇒ cmo” before I became more aware about
related software constraints.

I would have found an error message like “The target “commands.cmo” could not
be built because the specified dependency “commands.mli” did not exist.”
nicer in a specific development situation.
