Good solution. We could also control SAR expansion from there too.

A block with a schema is already known, the BlockDescriptor has a m_schemaType 
which is non-null for blocks with a schema.

I'll see about implementing a combination of the two above ideas..  the 
environment block as well as the pre-validation before a startup attempt. It 
may be a few days as my at-work time to hack phoenix has come to a close for 
now, back to higher-level app-specific stuff.
