Support partial updates to deployments
Each time I need to change any component on my deployments, i need to repackage everything and upload the whole thing. As my packages grow in size & complexity, this becomes quite timetaking and not so well. I suggest to please support selective component updates
I believe there is no way we could add certificates to machine store from management API or azure portal when azure service roles are running. It's good if we can get this feature, specially for multi tenant applications that require certificate identification.
Make it possible to update or upgrade deployment. Sometimes you want to upgrade/update a webrole/workerrole without the complete deployment. Especially handy when using or deploying Webservices.

Want to a new host header to map to an existing website? Tough as that's part of the service definition file...and can't be changed
It is so painful at the moment. I give up using Worker/Web role due to the slow deployment. I hope MS will be looking at this seriously. This is feedback was created 4.5 years ago but it is still under review
It's really a deal breaker for rapid deployment.

They need to integrate publishing static web files like JS,CSS etc to blob storage as part of the publish operation. This would apps more scableable as statics files wouldn't be served by web roles. It would also allow updates to static files without re-deploying the instance.
Stored WCF endpoints in web.config ... a change means redeployment . Pain.
