```Just responding to an old thread (no idea if this was subsequently addressed independently):

I would suggest that rather than rearranging an existing sequence, that a new sequence be added, with the new formula -- then both sequences outfitted with appropriate cross-references to each other and to A341915 and A341916, etc.
