This may be a good idea, but I don't believe getting a report like this is all that difficult right now using the current "in-box" reports with the proper filters.

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 don't have the problem of a reboot every 24 hours because I have configured group policy to "disable" Windows software updates.
I do like the idea of rebooting if nobody is logged on, however, i don't see any consistent way of pestering users more frequently.
We use a scheduled task through GPO to force a weekly reboot in the wee hours before the work week starts.
Another possibility would be the option to set a "hide" flag that is permanent until removed. The standard queries would return all results that aren't hidden, however, you could add a hidden=yes to your criteria to view them.
