Thanks for submitting this idea! I’ve moved it to the Report Server category.
This all depends on how long a feature is in preview. If for example a feature like theming is for one year in preview it would be nice to split the progress of the feature in several releases that could transition over time into PBIRS. Then one could use a feature on PBIRS but maybe with a limited functionality compared with the monthly release.
Thanks for the feedback! Others, chime in with your votes and comments here.
Totally agree, without shared data sources, it doesn't scale for an enterprise environment. Please consider this for the next release of PBIRS.
There is Power BI Report Server that does this. And in a personal opinion the further you can stay away from SharePoint the better. So please don't combine any of the BI stuff with SharePoint, that is just pain.
Would be handy when working with hash keys

Tons of helpful feedback here. Thank you!
Several people asked why we removed support for multiple instances. Rest assured, we had no desire to do so. To release Power BI Report Server every few months, independently of SQL Server, we needed to develop a new installer separate from the SQL Server installer. (There was other customer feedback that called for a separate installer as well.) There’s simply more work for us to do to reintroduce multi-instance support within this new installer. We don’t yet have a timeframe to share, but yes, we do plan to reintroduce multi-instance support!
One scenario could be different admins. We want to keep the admin access on certain data as small as possible (need to know based). One instance => one server would be a bit waste of resources.
We started the process of supporting custom visuals for Export to PowerPoint. you can expect some of the more popular custom visuals to be supported soon.
RSS Feed would be fantastic, the store.office.com is a nightmare. Forum Section per Custom Visual would be fantastic as well. Should help very much to concentrate the feedback loop. That one as well with an RSS feed so one can stay up to date.
Today I wanted to make links from our intranet to a selection of custom visuals so users can see what we are offering in our App-V package. However it seems not possible to link to a custom visual page in store.office.com
July Release has a link to the store built in however since cloud services are no go for our company it is not much use for our scenario. Especially for the Power BI Desktop in combination with the on premise Power BI report server there must be a better solution.
Happy to help with testing this scenario.
Moving it to store.office.com made it just worse. Now it is already a challenge to see what is available, not mentioning to see what was recently updated and what was the update. Please give us an RSS feed or an API from where we can fetch the relevant information to keep this maintainable.

Please also keep your enterprise customers in mind. There might be a certain set of custom visuals one would like to provide with the app (distributed via App-V) so that all corporate users have the same set of custom visuals available (yes being able to influence this via an AD Group policy would be a dream ;-))
