I have a hard time believing Redmond wouldn't actively work against such a service. Especially now, where they have successfully transitioned most of their client base to an agile delivery system. With their releases being more cadenced instead of feature based, this provides them the opportunity to keep breaking any code which would prevent all of your required modules from being present. Hell, the way this thing phones home you could even create a dependency injection style system within the OS, and phone home if a module is missing which is declared a requirement.
Also keeping in mind that the vast majority of installs is Home or Home Premium equivalents, with no options to turn off the automatic updates, without paying for an additional tier of licensing such a tool would likely be a very temporary fix at best.
Yeah, the way Windows 10 works with it's updates and such, I'd imagine it's nearly impossible to do that. If I had to guess, I'd say it automatically re-downloads and installs all the "features" that aren't present whenever a check for updates is done.

That's them, couldn't for the life of me remember. By chance do you know if they work with Windows 10?
Remember finding that when trying to enable Crossfire on my motherboard way back in the day when some boards would support SLI out the box, but not Crossfire.
