How can we improve Configuration Manager?

Increase performance of incremental collections so that the best practice limit of 200 can be increased

Incremental collections are an invaluable component of Configuration Manager 2012 that is unfortunately held back by the performance implications of having too many (based on the best practice limit of 200). While the -need- for frequent updating collections was reduced based on an applications conditions, there is still an industry preference to manage application availability using Active Directory groups. As a result, the number of collections potentially benefiting from incremental collection updates is high. I work around this by parsing collections that reference AD groups, checking if they've been updated recently and then requesting collections updates of relevant collections. This works, but simply being able to tick incremental collections would be way better and more discoverable for most Configuration Manager users.
