How can we improve Application Insights?

Allow specifying Tags in ApplicationInsight.config

The article at [1] provides guidance on using tags to annotate requests so that we can separate traffic coming from separate environments and such. However, adding tags right now requires explicitly writing an IContextInitializer.

It would be great if specifying the tags would be available as an option directly from the ApplicationInsights.config file, either by directly providing an element for including the tag data, or by providing a built-in IContextInitializer that read it from the application configuration.
