add MCAUSER to SMF116 audit record

refer to PMR 75607,650,758
we implement SMF116 collection for audit pourpose.
The request is to have in SMF116 the MCA USERID if it is speficied at channel level for audit and billing pourpose.
In fact We have our all channel defined with MCA USER ID specified and Putauthority OnlyMCA. From SMF116 we expect to have for channels in the USERID field the MCAUSER defined at channel level.
This is not true and the only userid specified in the SMF116 is the CHINIT userid.

    Moving this to "Not under consideration" as while we agree that this is a useful piece of function, I don't see it getting to the top of the priority list in the next year or so.

    Just curious if there are any updates on this has been "under consideration" for over 4 months at this point.
    This is functionality that would be greatly appreciated to help alleviate some concerns from business areas that are hesitant to adopt client attach due to this lack of audit field.
