I don't use the Nikon TC14 on the VR1 for lack of sharpness at 200 mm for just about anything below f5.6. If you were in a focus priority mode, the shutter would not release if the lens was not in focus - so the switch position has this failsafe.

Not my experience at all. My 70-200 VR1 is very sharp at all focal lengths wide open with the Nikon 1.4x TC. Only with the 2x TC do I have to stop down. Never had an issue with the shutter that you mention on any of the bodies and the 70-200, including D100, D200 and D300s.
