How can we improve Configuration Manager?

Include friendly names for content IDs, Application IDs, etc. in log files

Having only the internal IDs of objects in the logs causes a lot of extra work when tracing through a log file going back and forth to find out what an Id is in "human terms".

It would be great if there was a friendly description included alongside the Id e.g. "Application not discovered. [AppDT Id: ScopeId_A0857DD4-CD56-4262-B209-7DC212F0E26B/DeploymentType_1e8b52ad-60df-49f7-8d33-e18cefa2134d, (My Friendly App Name/My Friendly Deployment Name), Revision: 2]

While I realize that the names are really metadata and subject to change, having them in the logs would greatly speed up troubleshooting at times.
