This vault is quite easy to build with standard AC tools!

If you spend some time to define the geometry in 2D it is usually possible to build what you want. We cannot expect to have a tool for every shape we conceive. There is not a vault tool in 3dsMax either, but nobody complaints! ;)

Complex profile is the right approach for it!

I think, this is possible with the Complex Profile tool. Define the geometry in 2D (the sinusoidal shape), then apply to a wall and draw a circle wall. If it's not represent correct in plan (to be seen from above), rotate in 3D and save as object.
Also could be drawing with the Profile add-on.
Is that correct?
My opinion.
If I want to apply to a roof, and place a skylight, is possible?
