Add Additional field to change request header and can be accessed by gov api

Gone through the community and found some threads are guiding add additional field to CR header and most of them are pointing to the documentation below.

This guide is using Z-table method to capture additional information. Tested in the sandbox and found that there are some limitations

1) The record created in Z-table even though the CR is not saved yet. And no rollback when the CR is close without saved.

2) The Z-table is not accessible by any API including governance API/Convenient API.

3) When performing the check, BADI UMSD_RULE_SERVICE, not able to read the additional CR header field by using API, seem like the only way to access them is reading from the database instead.

4) File upload/mass upload will be an issue as the those field can not be added by using gov API/conv API.

Just wondering is there any other better option provided by SAP that allow to add additional Z-field into the CR header without enhancing the data model? Thanks in advance.
