Greetings from the SQL Server Manageability team.

Thanks for writing in to Microsoft. We greatly value your feedback.

However, given the work that would be involved in implementing this work, and triaging against our current set of deliverables, we do not think, we would be able to get to this in the near future.

Having said that, we value your suggestions, and would like to assure you that, we would keep these ideas in mind, when we do revisit this feature in the future.

Thanks again for providing feedback and making SQL Server the greatest Database server.
