Adding the baseline mechanism to do this wouldn't be difficult; you'd
just need to add a pipeline module that does the desired checks,
raising the appropriate exception based on what you find.

It won't be in MM2.1 because the much more complex problem is the u/i
to provide all the degrees of control people really want.

If you know what you want and don't mind hacking a little Python to
get it, it should be easy to add.
