Hi, we’ve started work on this enhancement, and expect it will be available in a coming release (we can’t say exactly when, as deployment timelines vary based on readiness and overall priorities).
Thanks, we will look into this.
Interesting idea, we’ll consider it – thanks!
This is something we are planning to improve, hopefully later in the year.Zach Bjornson commented
A similar case of handling mutability in GCP is how you can change the template for an instance group. If you change the template, then any newly created machines will be updated, but existing machines will be unchanged. It seems like that same type of thing could be applied to instance templates.
Note that because instance templates can refer to an image family, you can essentially mutate an instance template by publishing a newer image to the family. Thus there is currently no guarantee that template instances are identical.
This feature is under active development, and will be available in a future release. Due to the nature of deployments, we cannot predict the exact timeline.
As mentioned, exporting the billing data is one way you can obtain whatever sorts/filters you want, but we’re considering your suggestion. Thx!

Thanks, we are considering this request, it does come up from time to time. In the meantime, https://cloud.google.com/solutions/filers-on-compute-engine provides several options that may be useful for setting up a file server on GCE, depending on your needs.
