    This would also be EXTREMELY useful when pasting linked slides into a Word document. For consistency and re-usability, I create images in PPT with all of their markup, then paste the slides into Word documents. This way if any changes are needed, I can update the PPT and refresh the Word document. This is much more efficient than pasting as static images, because later I might need to update part of the image, while keeping any of the "markup" (like callouts pointing to part of an image) the same. Later updates would require re-doing the entire image, attempting to match styles, etc. By linking to a PPT slide, this is solved.

    Unfortunately, because the linked slide references by slide NUMBER, it's crucial not to change the order of slides. An embedded, auto-generated slide ID would be a tremendous improvement for usability, and to avoid errors.

    The new collaboration tools in PowerPoint look great, but they are not the same thing as a slide library. Please consider bringing the library feature back. For organizations that need to generate content quickly, with consistency, and with a minimum of effort, libraries are a great idea.

    If they were under-utilized, it may have been due to lack of awareness, or confusion regarding how to implement them in SharePoint. I suggest also making it possible to create a library on a network share (even if features are more limited, like change alerts not working outside SharePoint slide library).
