How can we improve the Azure Resource Manager?

Allow dots or dashes in service names...

Each Azure service has different restrictions on allowed characters in service name, max length, etc.

Cloud services, SQL Database, Traffic Manager, Search, etc. allows dashes in service name. Storage, for example, doesn't allow dashes in service names. Storage, for example, doesn't allow dashes in service name.

Redis allows very limited (six to twenty) chars, with no dashes or dots.

#1
Please use uniform restrictions on length and allowed char restrictions on all service names.

#2
Allow DASHEs (better yet DOTs) in service names.

As our azure foot print grows, it is becoming increasingly difficult to follow any naming convention that is readable across multiple regions/environments/services.
