Updating this one to planned. We have work in this area that should address the general set of comments that are in this suggestion. While we aren’t doing the NEVER reboot, we definitely hear you that you need more than a 24 hour window. We should have more details to share in the next TP so stay tuned for updates soon.
I created something like this using scheduled tasks and PowerShell.
It was a nightmare and took months. (Lots of scenarios to deal with)
We have a set of scheduled tasks force a reboot on workstations every week (Sleeping or not)
For laptops, we nag the user at logon, screen saver unlock and RDP connection if a reboot hadn't occurred after 2 weeks.
Prior to this we had tonnes of machines that updates wouldn't stick because nobody would reboot. We had 2 guys that hadn't rebooted in over a year!
I bet they will have to make Win-R and explorer.exe support $variables first.

This is available as the application groups feature in the 1905 technical preview. We’d love it if you installed it and gave us your feedback.

Saw a working demo of this recently so updating to planned.
This is either related or a dupe of https://configurationmanager.uservoice.com/forums/300492-ideas/suggestions/11532669-fix-supercedence-behavior
The could be dupe of:
Allow required deployments to be uninstalled
Why not also make this available for detection scripts. Getting the name of the application that the detection script is for would save me lots of work.
Why not also add a [Update ALL my apps NOW!!!] button.
We have users who come to the office for a limited time but they have to leave their laptops over night to make sure all apps are installed.
