I think we all agree, that there is an architecture issue but that's a 
little deviating from the point of this patch. I don't question the 
usefulness of signaling/handling  discontinuities.

I just point that in the current state of the code, keeping this flag 
make little to no sense and I'd rather not keep something unused if 
possible. If it's needed in the future we can add it back or create yet 
another type of block.

Having it while it's generally unused is somehow encouraging people to 
misuse it... That's the kind of issue that caused this whole patchset :)
