I thought there was a point in letting the application loading code 
notice the error so that it could let other already started 
applications shut down in an orderly fashion.

I would have expected especially distributed Mnesia operations to gain 
by being shut down 'nicely' rather than by erlang:halt/1?

Besides these doubts of mine, thank you for sharing your advice.
