In order to create successfully create entry validation criteria, the ability to either insert entries at any place in list or move entries within the list is required.

This idea will be used to add new entry to existing entry validation and have all of the entries evaluated properly. Without this idea new entries that should precede any OR conditions will require existing entries be deleted then recreated after the new entry has been added.
