How can we improve Configuration Manager?

RBA Role Prompt when launching console

Many of the other System Center products allow a single user account to have many different roles assigned, and instead of merging them like Configuration Manager does, they prompt at login which role should be applied. This allows an admin for example, to have one account that they can manage all workstations, but then reopen the same console and choose a different role to manage all servers. This would solve many issues that come up when dealing with scoping issues where an object that was created do not have the correct scopes applied. It will also address a concern that an admin with multiple roles assigned, would still be able to manage workstations and desktops in the same console view.
