Pattern Check column property

Would like a new column property (analagous to Range Check and List Check) for character columns. It would (interactively) validate column input against a pattern specified as a regex or as a search string, and reject input that failed to match the desired pattern.

 

My purpose is to make it less error-prone when manually filling out tables with data like id's, names, etc. that are supposed to conform to a know pattern.
