Generic Ignore for New v12 Columns on SYSTABLESPACE and SYSINDEX

v12 introduced additional columns on SYSTABLESPACE and SYSINDEX which match attributes that were previously present on SYSTABLEPART and SYSINDEXPART, respectively. When a source object has been created in v12 is compared to a target object which was created prior to v12, Object Compare currently generates an ALTER on the target tablespace or index. We have set up ignores to stifle this behavior, but then if there is a legitimate change to an attribute on the source which we want to be applied to the target, the actual change to the attribute is also ignored (in this case, it would be a difference on SYSTABLEPART, also). We would like to see an option to ignore these new v12 columns so that if the only reason there is a difference is because the source was created in v12 or after and the target was created prior to v12, it will be ignored, but if there is an actual change to an attribute, it would still generate WSL to apply the change to the target as well.
