How can we improve Configuration Manager?

Possibility to priorize an (InPlace) Upgrade Task Sequence over Update Installation

Since Microsoft introduced the strategy to deliver two new OS builds per year for Windows 10 and a mandatory expiry date of SAC builds, the focus / Engineering task focuses back to perform in place Upgrades via Task Sequences.

As those Task Sequences are not deployed at a specific time during the week it might happen that some Windows OS Quality or Office Update are pending or queued for Installation. It does not make sense to deploy a Quality Update for the OS Build which is queued to be upgraded to a new OS Build (with new Quality Updates).

My Feature request is to priorize those in place upgrade Task Sequence deployments over OS / Office Updates in order to perform the in place upgrade for the Endpoint ASAP after its Deployment and prevent long reboot sessions due to earlier OS / Office Update installations.
