I am trying Server 2012 / PowerShell 3 for the first time.

The very first thing I tried to do was to enable remote desktop via PowerShell. From the GUI -> System Properties -> Remote -> Allow Remote Connections

My understanding is that there is no built in command for this I you need to script it.

I would assume this is not an unusual admin task so any chance of adding support for it?

I agree that this would be a welcome addition.

Millions of admins around the world use RDP every day, and I think a discussion about completely replacing RDP with PowerShell remoting is outside the scope of this suggestion.

Would you not consider using powershell remoting to do the tasks you require instead of using RDP to do them?
