Has there been any consideration to giving administrators the ability to cancel some actions? To expire commands after a period of time?

Can you give me more information about what you are looking for?  What type of things do you want to be canceled?  What is the use case for canceling them?

I'd counter with, why shouldn't we be able to cancel commands? I wasn't thinking of in-progress commands, but SEP is like a postoffice with commands waiting in postboxes for the clients to pick up, it shouldn't be a huge challenge to remove those commands before the client has retrieved. 

Let's say you issue a reboot command for the wrong system. I recall you can cancel the scan element if you do an update content and scan, might be able to cancel the scan on its own but I don't run them without the update.
