Automatic policy creation for instance type scale that take Availability Zones into consideration.

Sometimes, we encounter the error 'The requested configuration is currently not supported.' due to the instance scaling action.


Example: t3.micro -> t3a.nano


Regions where each instance type is supported:

    t3.micro:  ap-northeast-1d, ap-northeast-1c, ap-northeast-1a

    t3a.nano:  ap-northeast-1d, ap-northeast-1a


In this case, if the original instance was located in ap-northeast-1c, the changed instance would not start due to the error: The requested configuration is currently not supported.

It may be a rare pattern, but I would appreciate it if such regional restrictions could also be automatically created as policies.
