Statistics Data for MQI Channels Merged

On distributed platforms, MQ provides statistical information for message channels, but not for MQI channels (server conns/client conns). To find out which MQI channels are/are not being used, we'd have to turn on MQI accounting which is much more intensive. We would like to have access to statistics data for MQI channels so that we can more easily, safely, and accurately determine which MQI channels are being used by applications.
