This is a phenomenal idea that I hope the Meraki-Go dev team decides to implement. I recently added the GX20 to my network setup that already had a GS10 switch. The switch worked great until the gateway came into the picture. Now the gateway works, but the switch is perpetually alerting for unknown reasons, and even when it isn't alerting, it fails to achieve internet connectivity via the GX20.
As a result of these issues I tried doing factory resets on all devices in order to start the setup process with a clean slate, but there is no easy/reliable way to do so. Even after doing factory resets, the previous hardware settings persist in the cloud anyway, even after deleting the devices in the hardware section of the Meraki app. Maybe I am overlooking something, but even if that is the case, the OP's suggestions would add some much needed troubleshooting functionality to the Meraki-Go suite.
