CDC engine for DB2 LUW : Getting support for range partitioned, MDC, RCT tables out of the grey zone

Since CDC 11.3.3 there is a documentation page in knowledge center which explicitly states that range partitioned, range clustered tables and partitioned table will not be replicated by CDC for DB2 LUW.

However, CDC 11.3.3 lets one replicate these type of tables (without the slightest warning) and it works flawlessly like it did in the past, so I am wondering why the specific statement is made that these table types are not supported.

Range partitioned tables for instance were supported since CDC 6.5.2
by setting the system parameter "range_partitioned_table_support" to true.

This functionality is still there under CDC 11.3.3 and working perfectly.

The current RFE is to make these table types officially supported again.

I have multiple clients using (or wanting to use) these types of tables in conjunction with CDC.
