Manifest code to block specific carrier?

I would like to block either:

  1. The entire cellphone carrier Sprint
  2. The specific phones Sprint Hero and Sprint Moment

Is there a way to do this in the manifest file or any other code related means?

I want to block the Sprint Hero for the widget bug and the Moment for handling contacts incorrectly. A huge fail on the part of Sprint.

You can block certain carriers in the Android Market, but you cannot block carriers or devices in the manifest, AFAIK.
