How can we improve Configuration Manager?

Application Lifecycle Management options in Console

One of the big struggles at many companies is not putting application IN SCCM, but having a proper process to retire old applications and do regular cleanup. So it would be good to have some options to automate the process when retiring applications.

- having the content for retired applications automatically removed from all distribution points
- having the files/folders removed from the content source location
- having the retired applications deleted from SCCM after the cleanup completed.

I know there are some PowerShell scripts out there and console extensions but it would be nice to have this as a fully supported out of the box feature in the console.
