I would like to propose the ability to take a Linked Clone of a VM and 'unlink it' - i.e. consolidate the entire Linked Clone into a stand alone, independent VM. Though it might be used rarely, when needed it would be invaluable. Linked Clones can be used to perform multiple experiments with VM's from a single common basis without risking the 'parent' - far beyond the capabilities of Snapshots. If such an experiment proves worthy as a viable independent VM then being able to detach it into a standalone VM without having to drag it's parent around with it would be superb. I'd imagine using 'Archive' or 'Prepare for Transfer' would potentially be a good avenue to explore for the mechanics of how to go about this, but a distinct 'Unlink' feature would be helpful to most of the users who would benefit from this.
