We don't require rolo to force enable this feature, I perfer to add
a minor mode, when I enable this mode, this feature is enabled.

Not everyone like to input with minibuffer, opening and editing file
may be another common operation.

So basically, you want either a dynamic or batch validity checker to ensure that all entries meet some minimum formatting standard.
That would be another library and the checks would like need to vary based on the formats that someone used.  For the specific issue you mentioned, it is easy enough to write a few line function or use a regular _expression_ search in a keyboard macro to find any errant entries.
As a result, I don't think this warrants any change in Hyperbole now and will close this issue but we will keep it in mind as we evolve the Rolo and thank you for the input.

Here is a function that you could use for your specific issue:

(defun outline-to-next-blank-entry ()
  (if (re-search-forward "^\\(\\*+[ \t]*\\)$" nil t)
      (goto-char (match-end 1))
    (message "Any outline headlines following point are non-blank.")))

Now rolo file can insert things in any place, such as:

What about add a minor mode, which limit input just like koutliner:
