thank you very much for sharing this with us. Would you mind filling a new ticket for that on our JIRA ?
I would be also interested to understand your use case a bit more. I'm particularly interested in the need to use text based column as base for incremental column. Using append incremental mode on text column would require creating rows that will have order which is not usually the case for string columns.
