Qn: PCM_OP_RATE_POL_PROCESS_ERAS should be the only place|opcode to load ERA details from Database (DB) to Cache|RAM.
Can this be implemented?

Reason: Customers can customize PCM_OP_RATE_POL_PROCESS_ERAS (unlike the standard opcodes (not _POL_)), and in this way they will have the full control of ERA loading from DB to RAM.

According to documentation, OP_RATE_GET_ERAS opcode will grab and cache the ERA details from Database. This opcode is called by PCM_OP_RATE_POL_PROCESS_ERAS.
Besides that, during the tests it was found out that OP_RATE_GET_CANDIDATE_DISCLIST is another place where OP_RATE_GET_ERAS is getting called, but could be other opcodes, too.

With this request, customer wants that OP_RATE_GET_ERAS should be called only throughout PCM_OP_RATE_POL_PROCESS_ERAS. Any other opcode which directly calls OP_RATE_GET_ERAS should be changed to call  PCM_OP_RATE_POL_PROCESS_ERAS, instead.
