How can we improve Configuration Manager?

Ability to Control/Limit Wake-Up Proxy Candidates

The nomination for Wake-Up proxies is fully automated.
From testing, up to three devices per subnet will remain switched on (or in some cases start back up if a user shuts them down). This is not appropriate in cases where a small office may contain only 4 or 5 machines.
Additionally, if a server is located at a particular site (DP for example), this should be the sole wake up candidate, due to the fact that the likelihood of that device shutting down is minimal.
I propose changes to achieve the following:
1) The ability to designate specific Wake-Up proxies
2) Control/limit the number of auto-nominated Wake-Up proxies
