include num of Rows discarded in a REORG DISCARD utility execution

It can/will be VERY useful to Db2 zOS users if the Object level utilities history will record the number of rows discarded in a REORG DISCARD utility execution. As documented I understand that the object level information will be available in v13 FL504 for utility runs via a new catalog table. I'm not sure if phase level details are coming in phase-2 or maybe phase-3 of the utilities history update but whenever they are made available number of rows discarded will be an excellent inclusion for REORG DISCARD processing.

    this could also be quite useful in the light of data renetion policy changes across banking/financial industry. The recent changes have been around retaining data for longer than currently catered for. Where (date based) reorg Discards already in use or new implementation a real possibility is for the Reorg Discard running for years and not discarding any data and then suddenly one day in the future will start discarding data. Utility Object level and/or phase based history will be useful in identifying this and also the trend over time.
