Adding CSV files to AGOL with schema.ini control

In ArcMap you can control how the field types are interpruted using a schema.ini file residing in the same directory.

It would be great to have this same control when adding CSV files to AGOL either to just the map or as a hosted feature service.

 This would help if the first row does not contain the field names which ArcGIS requires in order to import a *.csv file.and 
if a column was supposed to be text field and had value 001, ArcGIS would automatically converts this to a number field dropping the leading 0’s.

I definitely like this idea. I have one CSV which I update occasionally with over 70 fields. Some are incorrectly typed by AGOL as it only looks at the first 8 rows when typing a field. This means I have to manually change the field type every time I reload the CSV file.
