should horizontal rebar run continuous through control joints in cmu walls? I think it should because it can be used as diaphragm chord reinforcement (unless other measures are taken). I think the percentage of horizontal steel in the wall is typically low enough so that the continuous rebar doesn't lock the joint.
I ask the question because I recently saw this detail on another structural engineers set of plans.
