Instance Metadata Service should support "standard" SKU public IP in the same way as "Basic" SKU
A request to Azure Instance Metadata Service allows me to retrieve from the VM all the network related information (for each NIC):
- IP address
- Public IP associated
It is a very convenient way to discover from the VM itself which public IP it has without needing an external service.
The problem is that only "Basic" SKU Public IP are supported while we need "Standard" SKU to support Availability Zones or reserved Public IP ranges.

Insane this wasn't included by default with the standard SKU. They want new projects to use a lesser supported product.
+1 on this from me. I just logged a support issue yesterday on this and was told to provide feedback in hopes of this getting implemented sooner.
