Feature Request: invalid workflow file should show as failed or errored in PR / commit checks

I recently introduced an error in a workflow file in a PR but neglected to notice as the PR showed as green and passing all checks (it just hadn’t run the jobs from that workflow).

It would be nice to surface invalid workflow files as a failing PR check so that it it is less likely that they will be missed. Some other CI systems report this an on “error” rather than a “failure” to distinguish them.
