Simply deleting \fqa* might not have the intended effect. For example,
\f + xxxx could also be translated \fqa yyyy \fqa*or \fqa zzzz\fqa*.\f*
does not mean the same thing as
\f + xxxx could also be translated \fqa yyyy or \fqa zzzz.\f*
but does mean the same thing as
\f + xxxx could also be translated \fqa yyyy \ft or \fqa zzzz\ft .\f*

I agree that this merits some sort of nonfatal warning.
