Do I understand you correctly?
We should probably just leave it as a "quality of implementation" issue for the editor driver to prefer single move(a,b) instructions over pairs of move-away, move-here. We could try to come up with a requirement that it must do so in certain cases (starting with collapsing adjacent pairs of move-away, move-here), but I think this may be rather difficult to define fully and hard to justify.

I'm not sure what you're thinking about validating the editor drive being easier.
