Creating an optional step in a model

I have a model which I'm publishing as a geoprocessing service as using in the geoprocessing widget in a flex viewer site.

I want to add a step to my model that exports the table of the output feature class to a text file. However I want this to be optional so that the user doesn't have to save a text file if they don't want to. Is there a way to add a step as optional in a model? I know I can make a parameter optional, but the way I have the parameter right now is for the file name, and that can't be optional.
