PowerVC changing the synchronization rate for volumes on IBM SVC

I would like to change the default SVC synchronization rate in PowerVC from 2 MB/s to 64 MB/s so that a volume no longer needs 24 hours to synchronize and is synchronized after 2 hours.

At the moment you have to adjust this manually in the SVC.
svctask chvdisk -syncrate 100 xx

The adjustment would have to be stored in the storage template.

Generic storage volumes - Advanced settings
Enable mirroring
-> and the new feature
Volume sync rate: 0-100
(like SVC mirror sync rate 0KB/s to 64 MB/s.)
