Npm local package dependency

Scenario:
In moudle-A I wanted to use local package called module-B.
A/package.json content:
"dependencies": {
"module-B": "file:../module-B-direcotry"
}

B/package.json content:
"name": "something-else"

Actual behavior:
npm install command should create symbolic link in node_modules of package A. It not created symbolic link to B (and I have not complains about it) because module B have different name in package.json of B:

Expected behavior:
I expect error during npm install (or at least warning) if local package name do not match it’s expected name and symbolic link is not created.
