Uninstall button greyed out in Software Center for applications that are pushed via a "required" collection

When deploying an application through a collection in "required" state, uninstall button is greyed out. This doesn't happen if the application is installed through a collection in "available" state. We would like to have the uninstall button always accessible, no matter if the application was pushed in a required state or not. Corruption happens all the time and technicians need to be able to uninstall/reinstall all the time. Because uninstall is greyed out, they have to use the control panel instead, which defeats the purpose of using Software Center.

        I fully agree that this should be an option for all required deployments. With more than 20000 PCs our Support staff need to perform the manual uninstallation / reinstallation regularly. Not having this option have led to us still preferring Application deployment for 95 % of all deployments. Users can then work on a locked down PC with Mandatory Installation of the application with a Uninstall deployment avaliable when needed.
