How can we improve Azure Networking?

Allow the use of a known outbound nat gateway for vnets

VMs placed in a vnet today with a public ip attached, access the Internet from arbitrary, unknown addresses. This makes it hard to manage access from Azure VMs to backend systems relying on IP-address ACLs. We simply need to know which ip address azure vms use for accessing resources outside the vnet. If I use UDR's with dest 0.0.0.0/0, load balancing in Azure doesnt work. Please give us a configurable NAT gatway per subnet or vnet similar to what aws has.
