Improvement to Customise form behavior
As I begin to develop more complex forms, I am increasingly happy with the form layout and behavior tools. However I would like to make some suggestions which might make using the Customise Form Beahvior easier to use

1) while I appreciate it has no impact on how the form is presented to the end user, being able to re-order the form behavior criteria so that behavior criteria belonging together can also be seen together would be a big help from a development and debugging perspective

2) when viewing the behavior (befoe pressing edit) the fields are listed alphabetically. Provide an option to list them in the order they are preseneted in the form. If you've just come from viewing the form layout then it is very confusing to have to rethink from the order columns appear in the form to alphabetical order.

3) provide an option whereby one can see for one field, every where it is used in form behavior. I know this is technically possible from Customize Existing Columns, but as the link from there only puts you into the form behavior generally, not right onto where it is used, and there is no back button, this functionality is not great.

A bit more detail on 3) above:
What this would show is say for field xxxx a list of each behaviour yyyyy in which it is mentioned and what On View and On Edit behaviour is assigned to it in each case and the ability to edit it from there. This would reduce the amount of time spent tryimg to find everywhere a field is mentioned and then work oout which behaviour has higher precedence over which other behaviour
