Need all link types available from RDM to be visible back CLM tools

RDM 403 allows traceability to the CLM tools (RRC, RTC, RQM). Some of the link types can be made from RDM to the CLM tools, but that same link does not appear in the targeted tool.
Example: Creating a design in RSA / RDM allows a user to link
("Satisfies") to a Requirement in RRC -- An RDM Reporting Application Design "Satisfies" the RRC requirement for "Ability to Report".
However, from the RRC side, this link is not shown in RRC (because only "elaborate" link type should be used from RDM in order to be displayed in RRC..

We need this functionality to work for all possible links in RDM.
