How can we improve the PI Server?

Step Attribute in the AF Server for PI Point data reference

As an AF administrator I want to be able to specify that an attribute with a PI Point data reference should be displayed as a STEP function to clients without having to enable the STEP attribute in the underlying PI Point configuration.

    The step attribute indicates a basic behavior of the data, and controls more than the trend - but behavior in interpolation.  If the change is only for the behavior of a trend - perhaps it would be better to override the behavior in a trend setting.  Can you explain a bit more the use case?

    Let's say i create an AF attribute which calculates average with PI Point data Reference enabled with step, i can see the AF Trend with step enabled but not the PI Vision. It would be good to have this property inherited in the PI Vision Trend as well.
