Move DISRT into primary command and remove 10 object foreground limit

There are various pain points:

Here is a scenario. I wish to identify tablespaces that are in a restricted state and either repair them or start them access force.

I get a list of tablespaces which are normally created by listing the tables in a schema and then issuing 'ALL S' to get the list of tablespaces

Problem 1.
If I type 'DIS' as a command, then if there are more than 10 objects in the list then you are forced to create a batch job or add statements to a WSL. 10 is a very low number and this makes the command unusable as we need to see a foreground results list displayed against which we can issue further commands.
This 10 object limit is used in several places within Admin Tool and is restrictive. We'd like to see this number significantly increased or available as a user controlled parm.

Problem 2.

DISRT is currently only a line command. We cannot issue it against a list of tablespaces.

    Thank you for submitting this enhancement request. While we view all the enhancement requests we receive as valuable and we would like to implement all of them, in an effort to have maximum transparency we are closing the ones that don’t currently appear on our two year product roadmap. This is not to say that these enhancements may not still be implemented at some point in the future, as we constantly evaluate our requirements on the basis of customer demand and technical impact and try to deliver maximum value to our customers. We appreciate your feedback and would be happy to discuss your enhancement requests further
