I don't see a problem with that. To the contrary, this looks user-friendly.

Just make sure to inform the user that the definition does not exist, otherwise
F2 (Follow Symbol) might (initially) be regarded as the shortcut for triggering

See class InsertDefFromDecl for the Quick Fix functionality. F2 / Follow Symbol
triggers FollowSymbolUnderCursor::findLink().
