rcleartool UCM CQ operations

rcleartool supports multiple functions in ClearCase such as deliver and rebase.
Under a UCM enabled environment, commands such as those listed that interface with ClearQuest do not function.

rcleartool prints out indicating that the user has cancelled the action due to not having ClearQuest configured.
IBM Support has indicated that these functions simply will not work, even by using crmregister via a full ClearQuest installation.

The online documentation currently makes no indication of which commands rcleartool supports but does not support under UCM configuration.

Request: Either provide support for rcleartool UCM operations, uniquely the deliver operation, or document which commands will not work under UCM for rcleartool in the IBM documentation.
