Yes, you are right. I think they'll build another test stand for this purpose. The info on re-use will be too valuable not to.

One could make a case for testing to failure and finding out how the hardware ages and fails. 

Perhaps another time.

I expect to see a test to failure of a Block V core when they get that far.

That's not gonna happen. An entire vehicle tested to destruction? Nope.

Test copv with no rp1 around to destruction? Like they did once before.
I assume block V will have new copv's?

Failure, doesn't have to mean destruction or explosion on the pad.  It should just be to the point that the control software shuts down an engine for being out of range.
I know they don't need it, but Crossfeed would be super cool.
