QUERY_ACCEL_OPTIONS (option 11), add V5 ONLY option

As documented below, QUERY_ACCEL_OPTIONS (option 11) provides two options only. Simply (for all accelerators) or (V7 only). Especially, for migrations projects from V5 to V7, if we had third option such as (V5 Only), this would secure the workload routing to V5 only during migration and will provide more controlled rolling migration with minimal operational changes.
