How can we improve Azure Storage?

A feature to enable storage diagnostics on / off when creating VM or Storage.

I have some complaints from users that they can not specify Diagnostics settings On / Off at the time they create a storage account.

When users create a new storage account, the storage account diagnostics is enabled by default and billing for storage analytics tables occurs because those tables are created automatically. Moreover users can’t notice those table storage being charged during usage if they are not familiar. Please add a feature to allow users to specify storage diagnostics On / Off when creating a storage account.

        I received the same feedback from other customers. They wondered unknown billing for the storage account even though they do not have any more data in it. It's few amount, but the customer sometimes need to explain what the cost for to their boss.
        Eventually, they feel bad because they have never turned the diagnostic on, but it's charged.
