Common issue I've seen many times, someone deletes or renames a folder in their product and the OIR can no longer send objects to that folder. Rather than fail, a process should be started to add the folder.
Most people get around this by not allowing users to create/edit folders, but that's not very user friendly.
It would also allow a change in OIR to re-direct all new items to a new folder location without having to go add it to all the products. I can't see a good reason why anyone would want an OIR to purposely fail if given a reasonable folder location.
