So far, that's never happened to me. I've used various version control
systems over the years with FM files and I've been fine.

To protect myself somewhat from the situation you describe, I have
a condition tag called Obsolete, which I apply to deleted features
and leave hidden for the duration of the release. Then I delete text
marked obsolete later, when I'm sure the feature won't return from
the dead.
