Volto - How do you edit an existing block's schema?

For example, if I am shadowing the View.jsx for a block from an addon and some of the settings for that block are no longer applicable with the new UI, do I need to shadow the entire edit block and create a new BlockDataForm? I have tried to use schema extenders (code below) to remove a property, but this just seems to throw an exception when you try to edit the block:

config.blocks.blocksConfig.accordion.schemaEnhancer = ({ schema }) => {
    delete schema.properties.non_exclusive;
    return schema;
  };

The problem is that a field id is referenced in two places: the schema.properties and schema.fieldsets[0].fields (or any other fieldset instead of 0)

To hide the field you have to remove it from the fields array, not the properties.

Works great, thanks! Is this the 'recommended' way of achieving this then?

It's fine. That's why the schemaEnhancer is a function, so you can do whatever to the schema.
