Comment (by ramitbhalla):

 So here's an interesting thought a user who's using qscale is essentially
 asking for the equuivalent for it for libx264, so the intent is mapping to
 crf. So put a message that qscale is not appropriate and one should use
 crf instead but internally map it to crf rather than throwing an error. As
 a user I would like the usage to be as simple as possible. Generally IMHO
 failing is never a good sign for any software (where possible).
