Run QWT against DB2 catalog copy

Since we don't allow our DBA's to do analysis and tuning in our production we would like to be able to run QWT against the production catalog copy that we have in test. The workaround we have is not really comparable but we have a routine that can do a pre-bind with explain yes to a fake collection in production but it only works for static SQL and we are getting more and more dynamic SQL. The benefit would be that our DBA's would be able to use QWT with current production statistics even when they are not allowed to use the tool against the production systems.

Who would benefit from this IDEA? The benefit would be that our DBA's can use QWT in our test environment with production statistics for both static and dynamic SQL.
How should it work?

We would like an option to change the schema for the catalog tables that QWT uses and point it to a catalog copy.
