Add custom Kafka property to CDC to produce additional monitoring trails

We discovered that the producer instance for CDC is not being created inside the custom Kcop java class. It seems to be created internally by the application. However, this leaves us unable to add additional behaviors for CDC as a producer to Kafka. We as clients would like to have the ability to add Kafka specific properties to generate additional monitoring trails for us to get better monitoring view of the whole cluster. Let us know if we can make a provision for adding any additional properties from the kafkaproducer.properties file in instance/conf. Below is the doc link which we are trying to achieve with the data replication.
