We are waiting on more feedback around this.
Please use TCP ping as a workaround. No near term plans to process ICMP on Load Balancer as it is a UDP/TCP product.
We are working on a way to offer alerts off of Resource Health events, which will cover this feedback.

This is very good feedback. Today we have separate datasources for what your quotas are (e.g. network, memory), and the metrics that we emit. Ideally, we could bring those two points together to give you a percentage of those metrics.
Also, once these are exposed, they will automatically be available for autoscale — already today you can use any exposed metric for scaling.
Domain registration is being evaluated and remains on our long term road-map. However, it is not planned for CY 2019.
This is a very interesting idea and one I like a lot! Let me dig into whether this is something we could consider in the future. Thanks for the idea! :)
