Add logic in programs/send queue to block null or Not Applicable fields in database

We have program entry queries in place to add records to look for notification date = today (see full criteria below). There are times where the harvest fails and "bad" records are put into programs. Since we have a nightly ETL process that updates the Main Database, so if a bad record makes it into a program and the date doesn't = today, then the user receives a notification with text that says "Not Applicable" (this is the text in the database when a user shouldn't get a notification). I'd like to suggest a product enhancement of adding logic to block sends where the fields are null or say "Not Applicable" so bad records don't reach the end user.

How will this idea be used?

As a marketer, I want to prevent bad records from sending to end users.

    We do not prevent entry for bad data, but once a contact reaches a step if the email address value is null or for SMS or Mobile, the phone or Mobile ID is null we do exit those contacts from the program automatically so they do not proceed and send.
