How can we improve Configuration Manager?

Add an option in Boundary group configuration that would force all clients in the boundary group to switch to Internet mode

We have a scenario where we want clients that are connected to the internal corporate network, but also have internet access to use cloud gateway and cloud DP instead of internal MPs, SUPs and DPs. We also want to force clients in these locations to download Microsoft updates from CDN rather than from DPs. In other words we want to move all SCCM traffic out of the corporate MPLS network to the Internet. Currently we can only do this with DPs by configuring boundary groups, but then it is complicated to force clients in specific locations to download updates from Windows updates. If we had an option in boundary group properties that said something like: "Clients in this boundary group use Internet mode", When enabled clients that find themselves in this boundary group start behaving exactly like if they were not connected to the internal network, but only to the Internet. This would fit our requirements.
We want to use this method for our remote users that connect via VPN (have access to SCCM MP) and also in small offices that do not have local SCCM infrastructure, but have direct Internet connectivity.
