Since you want to have the FK validated, it needs to go thru both this and the referred table to check the constraint. You won't get that to succeed for heavy used tables (when updating/inserting a lot).
Not requesting validation is one option. Better to check manually later for mismatches - you'll have to correct them anyway, and it is better to have the FK ensured for future changes than not at all.

"You can't do that" can be a valid and appropriate answer. If there is no way, there is none.
