I agree with this request, and it becomes even more relevant with the recent changes made to how the Files tab works.

I have been asking for this forever as well. Here is a supporting case: We have gone to great lengths to build a sharepoint intranet with sites based on organization and projects, etc. If we create an department or project Group, it will automatically create a SharePoint site for that Group, which means now that group will have technically 2 SharePoint sites, one used, the other not. But since it is wide open, some users might start using the wrong SharePoint site. It is almost forcing our hand to do tons of "mini-migrations" of sharepoint team sites just to avoid tons of unused empty sites sitting out there.
I would like to see this on a Group by Group basis. Go to a settings menu, and choose which services to "hide". Maybe they can be provisioned, just dont show them in the menus or search/delve capabilities.
you can do this in SharePoint today (i.e. put all members into Read Only permission bucket)
