Is it dangerous to block sitelinks in GWT?

I've restructured a site that performs fairly well in the search results. the goal of the restructure was to develop sections on the site for the 4 main "reasons" visitors come to the site (products, product information, product use, product example/use).

question is, should I block the sitelinks that google has in WMT (they still go to live pages) in order to get the sitelinks updated to the new sections OR do I leave it alone and hope that g changes them on their own?

Add a few more links on your index page to your important content and from articles to other articles and the sitelinks will be removed. They appear when your category pages accumulate as much pagerank as your index page. To me that suggests you're wasting some potential.

I blocked several sitelinks a while back, and months later they are still showing the blocked ones in the SERPs.

Additionally, the sitelinks list in GWT now lists other links they have chosen but those are NOT shown in the SERPs.
