Provide Reallocate option to set PRIQTY/SECQTY to -1

We are looking to simplify our DB2 dataset management by allowing DB2 to choose the correct sizes (PRIQTY and SECQTY to -1). However, there is not an option where you can put a specific allocation, or set an option to let DB2 pick the size (-1).

Who would benefit from this IDEA? Customers wanting DB2 to manage DASD allocations
How should it work?

On the Reallocate options screen, I would like to see:
- Option to set "Reallocate When" PRIQTY/SECQTY not equal -1

- Add "Set PRIQTY/SECQTY to -1" as an option under "Reallocate Space Paramters"

There may be other locations where it would make sense to add these.
