Let's just say that I certainly doubt that 5. Qa4+ is as good as 5. Bf4, preparing to put the queen on d2.  That Sveshnikov trap (assuming it's the one I think you mean) has approximately nothing to do with this position, and engines often come up with dubious opinions of opening positions.

The queen will need to move after ...Nc6 anyway so just being pro-active about it.  According to my engine it does nothing of the sort (throwing away the advantage).  A queen on a4 is often well placed in lines where Black has played ...d6 and ...a6, I am reminded of a trap in the 7. Nd5 line against the Sveshnikov Sicilian.

But do continue to mock, if thats what it takes to make your obviously inadequate being feel better, while I continue making associations between patterns in disparate openings.

1. e4 e5  2. Nf3 d6  3. d4 exd4  4. Qxd4 a6  5. Qa4+

Its not fundamentally unsound by any means and perhaps worth a try in blitz as if 5...b5?  6. Bxb5+
