I want same criterion id for same text and match type because it will not
be a one time operation , I may have to add same criterion to many other
shared sets and may have to remove it from some shared set so if it will
create different id each time , it will not look good as I am also saving
all the criterion in database and displaying it so I don't want different
criterion for same text and match type. Why can't we just add same existing
criterion in different existing shared set ?
