Ability to "take back" a page that has been distributed to student sections (not just "undo distribute page" of the LAST page distributed, but a way to look at a list of distributed pages, choose one, and then undo it)
This is being actively worked on, stay tuned!
Will this be available in the OneNote app for Windows 10?
Yes the ability to take back a page is a MUST !

Extension of the idea: I use distributed pages for in-class timed testing (language and culture) but I have to copy the pages with students responses to the teacher only area after the allocated time manually. If you could take them back and place them in an area of your choice (which may not be the original idea), it would be very helpful.

It would be great it be able to "take back" a distributed page within the class notebook.
It was mentioned by Microsoft staff here that this feature was not available (and "undo" is, in its place) because of the possibility of deleting existing student work. In such a case, I think there should be a warning dialog box, but leave the discretion up to the teachers. Plus, it would be good to add additional contingency measures, such as batch undoing the deleting process. In any case, there's already the history tab with the ability to view and restore deleted sections.
Ditto! Working from the web interface, it's really easy to get a connection hiccup and click "Add New Section" twice. As a professional writing teacher, it's not a lot of fun to stress the importance of designing interfaces and documents for your clients, and immediately ask students to delete a few empty sections just because I made a mistake.
I understand it from a legal perspective -- we shouldn't have the power to accidentally delete a bunch of student work. But, if I haven't added any students to a notebook yet, it would be great to be able to remove sections from the web interface.
I think that having the undo distribution was a great function but I really would love to have Microsoft come up with a "delete" function that allows teachers to delete pages already distributed and saved in individual students' sections. I wanted to undo my distribution initially but the app hanged and when I re-launched it, the function to undo was no longer applicable! It's kind of inconvenient to go through each student's section to delete a selection of pages especially when we're talking about an entire cohort's! Do hope to hear from you guys soon! Otherwise, I think OneNote Classroom has been fantastic so far!
