How can we improve Microsoft Azure Logic Apps?

SharePoint Online - When an existing item is modified - MMS Column Failure - Bad Gateway

Steps to reproduce:

1) Add 'When an existing item is modified' trigger to a new Logic App or Flow.

2) Target list has MMS column where internal name is different to display name - a display name with spaces ('Company Name'), and an internal name without ('CompanyName').

Result: On run, Bad Gateway: status 502, message "Unknown Error", source "<URL>/_api/SP.APIHubConnector.GetUpdatedListItems".

Does not appear to happen with other types of field (e.g. text, lookup). Does not seem to depend upon term set title.

Workaround: create columns where the internal name and display name are the same.

Why this is bad: it encourages terrible information architecture and column naming. It prevents adding Flows to lists and libraries where good column naming has already been enforced. In SharePoint, after you create a column you can't change it's internal name. The workaround in many cases means making the display name look ugly.
