How can we improve Configuration Manager?

Enable ‘Copy the content in this package to a package share on distribution points’ for the Application model

Using HTTP sources is currently broken for Windows (See MS case REG:117102316533973 - When an application requires a feature/needs to self heal Windows installer brings up the
Error 123. The filename, directory name, or volume label syntax is incorrect.) and a work around would be to use package shares however the application model does not have this.

The best solution would be a new distribution point feature that makes virtual package shares for each application not requiring extra space on the server. Otherwise enabling the same tickbox that is used for packages could be a quick win.

Reasoning:
HTTPS MSI Source locations are not supported.
HTTP MSI Sources either require you lower your security or enable Anonymous Access - And both are currently broken in Windows 7 and 10.
