Format data from an MDX Tabular Model

I would like to be able to format data within tables and matrices when the data has come from an MDX tabular model, without going back to the model creator and asking them to amend the format. This is an issue when the model gives data as a decimal and you want to report as a percentage, or where data is in the millions and you want to format as $1.65m rather than 1645674.23. There is a work round by creating a new measure but it would be easier just to format the data in the table

    I would also like this when connecting to a Tabular model using a Power BI gateway. I realize that it "inherent" the formatting from the model, but once in a while you want to change this standard in some reports, but not all of them.
