Otherwise it will render.  Many editing programs attempt to have "renderless" workflow by allowing you to drop anything onto the timeline.  Editors who rely upon this are sacrificing significant quality and speed in their workflow.  It is good that FCP does not do this.    There are reasons why you can't simply use H264 in editing that are not obvious to people.  For example, H264 has frame "clusters" (IB groups).  You cannot do a cut in between key frames, so editors which "fake it" round your edit to the nearest keyframe.  This changes the timing of cuts and edits and means that you can't seamlessly substitute higher quality materials for low quality materials (the usual technique for cinema workflow).   The unwashed masses who do amateur video could care less.   But we care, professional editors care, and we know you care!
