Add "WAS_EndpointInitialState" equivalent feature in Liberty

In WAS full profile, in order to enforce strict FIFO ordering of messages in a cluster, we set the "WAS_EndpointInitialState" property to "INACTIVE" on those Activation Specs to tell WAS full profile to not start the Activation Spec on startup, and then, start the activation on one server of the cluster.

It seems this is not possible to enforce strict ordering in a LIberty cluster as there in no equivalent parameter within the "properties.wmqJms" stanza.

Please implement this feature in Liberty, then we will eb able to migrate our apps from full profile to Liberty profile and ensure that messages are consumed in order in a cluster (FIFO)
