For Location types, allow additional jump types.

Please consider allowing additional jump types for Location input types. Specifically, it would be useful if one could Jump if no answer given, and jump if accuracy is greater than a value. The use case is to require more description of location if the GPS is not provided or the accuracy is poor. Currently we follow the Location input with an optional text field for description of location and ask users to provide it if they cannot get a good GPS fix. However, we get few responses, mostly because they did not notice the accuracy.

In general it might be useful for numeric input types to allow jumping based on higher or lower than values.

(If these are not possible or not strategic, we'll understand. We can get by without them. Moreover, I feel they may have been requested before but I could not find the request/response. Lastly, thanks again for a great product!)
