Using the quota command question

Quick (hopefully) question - the man page for "quota" says it isn't
recommended to do a "-f" when specifying a user. Due to some issues
that would take a while to explain, we will need to fix quite a few
quotas on users as we "xfer" them to a new system.
Is this an outdated statement in the man page? If not, what is the
risk? I'd hate to have to run "quota -f" across a server of many
thousand users just to fix one.
Thanks for any help!
