missing parm for forceFullReload (or detectChanges="PARTITION") in IDAA loader

According to Stored Procedure Guide V7.1.7 :
The forceFullReload attribute is deprecated because detectChanges="PARTITION"   without
partition list has the same effect as forceFullReload="false", and omitting the detectChanges
attribute and a partition list has the same effect as forceFullReload="true".
But there neither is an option for detectChanges="PARTITION" in IDAA loader - nor for forceFullReload="false - please adapt this - at least the forceFullReload option is available since ages, and should have been included in the product since beginning.

Who would benefit from this IDEA? our customer did use forceFullReload="false"...
How should it work?

another keyword instead of DETECT_DATA_CHANGES - for example DETECT_PARTITION_CHANGES could cover that one...  

Idea Priority Medium
Priority Justification to cover all options which are given through the ACCEL_LOAD_TABLES stored procedure

    Loader uses DETECT_DATA_CHANGES and automatically determines which tables / partitions need to be reloaded. Omitting this parameter forces a full reload of a table / specified partitions as expected
