Editing old records when constraints have changed

I have a form with pre-existing data, and I changed the constraints for some fields. This makes some previously submitted records inconsistent with the new constraints. When I tried to edit these previously submitted inconsistent records in the data view, kobotoolbox shows me a “Loading Error” modal box, and after closing this error message, it appends a new row to the table that incorporates my suggested edit of the old record.

Is there a more elegant way to edit previous records in-place so that their are consistent with the new constraints?
