Any fail of a reference or the Signedinfo is a failure. In the real world it
will means that somebody has tampered the signature to fix a tampered
referenced. Or somebody has just tampered the referenced and has been lazy
to update the signature.
But in the developing world use to means wrong transformations,
unintentional tampering. etc for checking this we have some debugging
methods that can give you more info about what has fail. See the
XMLSignature API and examples of using the methods.

p.s. If you have a better way of exposing this info, don't hesitate in tell
