Well, the structural guy should know, but I think you may have a point. How about running the beam immediately passed the CMU, and tying the CMU to the beam with anchors? That should also provide stability.
Also, burying the beam "in" the wall will negate the fire rating the shaft wall is required to have, by reducing the amount of material left to meet the rating requirements.
