Should there be a paradox filter?

I am encountering several paradoxes when looking at possible matches. Either someone is born to a 5 year old (which could just be inaccuracies) or even born before both parents.

Would it make sense for entry of a birthdate before the parents birthdate to trigger some warning to prevent these listings?

I am also finding several people with improbable life spans, up to 206 years. Unless someone is a biblical prophet, I think a life span of over 110 years should at least alert the profiler that something is out of whack.

I know in Ancestry.com they have those filters.  They check for birth date of children against age of mother as well.  It's a useful toll because most of the time it's catching a simple typo.  I also like that I can overide it.
