Add functionality to pass Provisioning Facts to BP

We are facing the challenge to dynamically adapt certain file transfer parameters based on the file name (e.g. codepage translations or other C:D parameters). In this case it would be useful to be able to pass defined Provisioning Facts in the Routing templates to a custom BP as variable (store them under the ProcessData tag).

This way you could define a default set of parameters for every partner by customizing the AFTExtensions.xml file, but at the same time reserve the flexibility to adapt to certain file characteristics once you define a routing channel.

How will this idea be used?

A customer sometimes delivers files with different coding or internally departments require different coding based on the application they use to further process the files. A big topic is the Record Length on z/OS systems - basically every file requires different treatment (FB, VB, LRECL etc.).
