Let a change of a SYS*_GROUP in the dbm cfg be reflected in the db2audit secmaint.del-file next to/instead of in db2diag.log

For security monitoring purposes every 30 minutes our production db2audit-files are archived, extracted and uploaded to a special security server for analysis purposes. However very important information is missing: when changing a SYS*_GROUP, the change from what to what it exactly has been changed will not be registrered in one of the db2audit-files (it it can be found in the db2diag.log however). Instead some rather cryptical non informative information is registered like (ai2gijui is the db2-instance btw):
"2015-12-11-17.58.59.985652","SECMAINT","UPDATE_DBM_CFG",0,0,"","
ai2gijui","AI2GIJUI",0,0,"*LOCAL_APPLICATION","
db2flacc",,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
We would like to see the exact change also (or only) be reflected in the db2audit-files, the place where imho it belongs to be in the first place, so we have a complete overview of security changes on a DB2-instance level and abuse/hacking can be noticed sooner and easier.
