We are exploring how to implement this feature without compromising privacy. Thank you for all the feedback!

One scenario that I have seen with customers is request input validation. It would be very useful to see the payload that caused the input validation to return an error response code.
Today, you can easily see all the failed requests in the Azure Portal, but you need to resort to custom event tracing to see the payload that caused the validation error, which seems like a duplicated effort.
I agree that there need to be a way to filter out sensitive input user data from the payload. Also, I would expect to pay some small computational price for the SDK parsing the payload. Sounds like this should be an opt-in function.
We are likely to support this in phases. Stay tuned for more details.
Windows Azure Websites offers the ability to have smaller deployed websites. The ability to have multiple roles on a single VM instance is still in planning.
