Supply admin property for work area changes to default to 'Modify this project only'.

Supply a database property that allows an admin to set the default of the Work Area properties for applying changes to be 'Modify only this project' instead of 'Modify this project and all subprojects'.
For our company, when dealing with grouping projects, it is less destructive to always apply to only the current project and explicitly select for all subprojects.
