RSA-RTE: Editor tabs should only be marked dirty when something has changed in that class

Originates from PMR: TS001239425 (cannot fill that in the PMR field).

Using RSA-RTE 10.2
When multiple windows (structure diagrams, state machines, code) are open in RSA and a single change is made, all are marked with a (*) to indicate that they are changed. This is very confusing. Only the files which actualy are changed should be marked dirty.

How to reproduce:
Create a model with at least two controlled units. Create a capsule in each unit.
Open state diagram bot both capsules.
Now change one of the state diagrams.
Tab for both capsule state editor is marked dirty now

Please only make an editor tab dirty if the concerning class was changed. If 'class' is not possible (because it is not a save-able unit), then please relate the editor tab to the controlled unit.

    Should this be not the case, please feel free to recreate it in our new Idea workspace for DevOps Model and Code RealTime (Please find here a blog how to achieve that:

    The idea will be kept in IBM's ideas repository and may still be voted on. It might be reassessed or reopened for additional feedback in the future. We value your feedback and thank you for allowing us the privilege of partnering with you in developing our products.
