Queue prefixes for SYSTEM.BROKER.** queues for node owned queue managers

This is already available for integration servers (remote), it would be useful to see this extended for nodes too.

Support was recently added to allow SYSTEM.BROKER.** queue prefixes for default remote queue managers used by integration servers. This aligns with the notion of a queue manager representing a (stateful) service to integration (in much the same way that Kafka or databases might be viewed), rather than strongly coupled. It also supports the minimal container concept, without mixing the non-functional requirements between integration and such services.

    Idea / RFE Review. Thank you for taking the time to raise this enhancement request, which we agree would improve the product. As noted, we have provided the ability to use a remote default queue manager for independent integration servers running in containers. In this architectural model, having an associated prefix makes it easier to share a queue manager between multiple servers and isolate their queueing needs from one another. Status of the idea is updated to Future Consideration.
