I disagree.
Rename could have a disastrous impact.
A change in a value may invalidate the evaluated subentries.
Especially if an entry is used a base entry of the subtreespecification of a subentry.
In that case the whole subtree under this entry needs to be invalidated.

I think we need to use both Move and Rename algorithms, one after another.
