Provide Context for Delivery Method inside availability user exits

Currently, GetAvailabilityCorrectionsUE doesn't have a delivery method context in its input. It would make customization more streamlined and elegant if this was available.

How will this idea be used?

In our use case, business wants to set different safety stock for ship & pickup. We're not able to use OOB safety stock features because they don't support all the use cases. So we're left with the option of customizing availability #s via AvailabilityCorrections UE. However, for RTAM and real time enquiry (findInventory) situations, there's no way of getting context about delivery method in the UE so that the right safety stock number can be applied.

Providing this context would help make customization more feasible in such situations.
