Add option "Clean-up capture agent catalog" to accelerator v7 like it was in v5

In V7, there is not such a feature available for now. The only option to
clean up capture agent would be manual cleanup with CDC tool via support
team, but it would only happen if the system has really become slow and
there was a high amount of tables that have been in replication but not
anymore or have been removed, or such situation may cause some issue.
Considering how rare it would be, we have not yet installed the feature
in V7, but you can submit an RFE for future plan.

    There are currently no plans to provide an option in V7 CDC as it was in V5 for clean up. Further, CDC has been announced as deprecated in V7.5.5. Please consider Integrated Synchronization as replacement technology. If you need a cleanup, please contact IBM Support.
