    MS asks for more details on the reuqirements and yes - I am looking for a DG-to-SG conversion, not an upgrade into an Office 365 Group. Well here our situation:

    We are using a distribution list to inform some of our employees about official announcements relevant for them. For the same set of employees we have official documents we want to share without sending as mail attachment.

    BUT and know it comes: this is not a collaboration scenario as it would be for an Office 365 group. It's solely for sharing information and giving access to ressources.
    As stated with reason on this page: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/office365/admin/create-groups/compare-groups?view=o365-worldwide:

    "Office 365 groups are used for collaboration between users" and
    "Mail-enabled security groups are used for granting access to SharePoint resources, and emailing notifications to those users"

    I have an existing distribution group and that is why I want to convert them to an mail-enabled security group instead of into an O365 group.

    "Unavoidable Business Reality" yep - you nailed it down.

    @Benoit: This very likely will never happen. Microsoft discourages to use Managed Pathes as they don't scale and they will not enable it in their own cloud farm. What you can do is using prefixes instead (.../sites/group-myGroup, .../sites/team-myTeam, ...) by configuring a distribution group naming policy.

    Perhaps they are afraid that Planner becomes too similar and therefor a competitor to Project Online...

    What does MS think about that idea?

    Imagine you have a Connector configured with your Group. Let's say you get a Notification in your Conversations Inbox via an RSS Feed, a Ticket Tool, a Customer Relationship Tool or any other Connector. And I see there is some work to be done related to this Notification - I could "promote" the notification to become a Planner Task!

    I am curious in what direction MS is going concerning Knowledge Management, Wikis, etc...

    @Raid: This would be something like a resurrection of Microsofts concept of a knowledge management portal called InfoPedia or at least some kind of alternative to it. I like that Idea a lot.

    Actually this is already in development: http://fasttrack.microsoft.com/roadmap#I-31829

    I've created a similar idea but hopefully more general (not restricted to automation) to attract more votes. See here: https://office365.uservoice.com/forums/286611-office-365-groups/suggestions/15827140-possibility-to-archive-groups

    We’re currently working on several aspects of your request. Today, you can use mailbox policies to restrict users from creating groups, but in the very near future, you’ll be able to define a security group of allowed users (your teachers and faculty). You can track our progress on this ask here: http://fasttrack.microsoft.com/roadmap#I-31838

    As this post covers several aspects as already mentioned by the MS Product Team. I've created another idea covering the "read-only, hide groups" part: https://office365.uservoice.com/forums/286611-office-365-groups/suggestions/15827140-possibility-to-archive-groups
