Allow Static Public IP's on Virtual Network Gateways

Static Public IP's cannot be used with Virtual Network Gateways. This can potentially be very problematic if a Virtual Network Gateway ever needs to be re-created or re-provisioned.

Example: what if we have 30 separate tunnels to a Virtual Network Gateway and it needs to be re-created or re-provisioned? This would result in a new Public IP being provisioned (takes about 30-40 minutes - of downtime!) which would require 30 remote VPN Administrators to be engaged to rebuild their side of the tunnel. This could be easily resolved by allowing Static Public IP's to be associated with Virtual Network Gateways.

Furthermore, if this feature is implemented, it should be done in such a way that allows existing VNG's to set their Public IP to static WITHOUT requiring the IP to change. Example: If we have 20 VNG's in 4 separate regions when you implement the feature, it would not even be feasible for us to use the feature if we will lose our existing IP when setting it to static.
