There is another possibility: that computer simulations of gene expression become possible to the extent that one could assess whether a given genome is viable or not, based on the population of viable genomes and actual constructed genomes for lesser animals. I'd think this would allow a sophisticated simulated reconstruction of the phenotype.

Perhaps this would be too difficult to achieve before any of the others have happened, though.
