There are situations where a question definitely sounds better than any
other form, so in isolation that should be the preferred translation.

As to consistency, I have the impression that you're looking for
consistency between languages, which I think just doesn't apply in
general. Consistency within a language definitely, but not necessarily
between languages.

Or is there something more at work here?
