One issue to try to avoid is for such blocks to last longer than the
transition they are supposed to help.  Would it be an idea for the
format to include a reference to the transition, for example using a
package and version number that is supposed to make it into testing
before the block is disabled, to make sure the block do not last
longer than it should?

Happy hacking,
