Does anyone know where i can make suggestions?

I think named port channels will be much more useful than numbers ,

eg ..

interface port channel SERVER-SW-2

int ra gi x/x , gi x/x  ...

   channel mode SERVER-SW-2 on

it makes so much more sense and is better for troubleshooting if you have a lot of port channels set up.

what does anyone else think?

With named Port-Channels you will find problems in displaying some commands. For example "sh int status". How long is the first field for interface-name? Imagine you will have a lot of Port-Channels beginning with the same name. You will not be able to recognize the Channels anymore. So it is much better to use only number for the Port-Channel.
