How can we improve Configuration Manager?

Allow Limiting the number of characters in a Collection Variable

We use collection variables when imaging a new machine, Specifically the OSDComputerName variable is used for naming the machines. Sometimes machines get named incorrectly and have too many characters. If I was able to limit the amount of characters that could be used in a Collection Variable, I could set OSDComputerName to be only 15 characters and our task sequences would not fail because the name is too long.

I would also appreciate if we could exclude special characters from being typed. Thanks!
