If I take a backup of a server and bring it up on a new system, the
blocks in the backup will not have been CRC checked before they go to

If I take the same server and now stream log records across to it, why
*must* that data be CRC checked, when the original data has not been?

I'm proposing choice, with a safe default. That's all.
