I understand what you mean, but I don't understand why you would want to test 
on that (unless you are making a theme-validation plugin).

You should register the widget anyway, either it is being called for (if the 
theme supports it) or it's not. Your plugin should also have a convenient 
function for use in themes that doesn't support widgets. That should be 
explained in a readme/install file.
