Support deletion of JSON child objects as part of Option redaction

As we have complex events with partly sensitive information in deeper child objects, we'd like to just store a single event per "change" in the Event Streams and define multiple options for the topic defining a redaction control to remove several child objects of the JSON. E.g. when we have a JSON {state: { publicData: {...}, customer: {}, lock: {}, ...}} we would like to define a redaction that deletes $.state.customer and $.state.lock. In reality the hierarchy is deeper and we might have to delete 10 different paths. Therefore, please support deleting a list of paths.

    Note that we also would like to support release version compatibility (stable event structure when e.g. new or changed attributes are defined) by using options. Therefore, redaction should also support renaming of JSON attributes as well as attribute transformation (e.g. transform values 1,2,3,4 to enum literals option_a, option_b, option_c, option_d).
