Yes, but this sounds not good to me.

Hope you get a better answer there then from me.
I'm not sure what the behavior should be.

- should you not offer the transistion for 
  processing in such a usecase
  (but what if this is a automatic transition?)

- Should you catch this usecase with a error message 
  like you said before

- Or should you let pass the trasnistion to the 
  end because this is a miss configuration

I really don't know what the recommended way should
be, but you could make sure catching this usecase and 
implement a kind of fallback transition and do something
what you need to do and avoid to get processed to the end.
This could probably be a workarround which makes it 
working without implementing a error message.
