How can we improve Configuration Manager?

Have Server Groups also apply to Software Distribution, OSD, and Compliance Settings remediation, in the same way as Maintenance Windows

Presently, we have to have separate maintenance windows for each node of a cluster to prevent them from rebooting at the same time. I got excited when I noticed the Server Groups feature and thought we might finally be able to ditch the separate maintenance windows, but it turns out Server Groups only apply to Software Updates only.

If I were to move away from using separate maintenance windows and implement Server Groups instead (which I really want to), there would be nothing stopping someone from creating an app deployment or a program which reboots both nodes of a cluster at the same time.

I can't even work around this problem by creating a separate maintenance window that only applies to software distribution because it's not an option - you can make maintenance windows that apply to OSD and software updates only, but not software distribution only.

Please make server groups apply to all deployments by default, or at least give us the option of selecting what kinds of deployments they apply to.
