That's correct.

We have a similar issue with "accounts" - we let a user
specify an account in their PBS script and if they're not
in that project we change that to their default (most users
are only in one, but some are in multiple).

Because you can't modify command line arguments we chose
to just reject jobs that specify -A in our submit filter.

Might be the simplest choice for you too..
