Rate Basis Item Of Shipment Total Cost (At The Current Stage Of Rating) Does Not Work Using Maximum

When displaying Cost Groups attempting to create 2 cost groups and using one as a “Maximum” of 2 costs based on Refnums instead of “Add”, the total cost is the sum of the 2 rate costs instead of the Maximum cost as expected.
The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
Cost 1: Charge 60.34 per Shipment
Cost 2: if loaded distance is null, $2.86/mile (required because at planning,
there is no loaded distance)
Cost 3: if loaded distance is not null, $2.86/mile of loaded distance
(required because during driver assignment, we only want to factor in loaded
miles, not empty miles)
Multi-costs rule: ADD the costs, because we have a flat charge PLUS a per
Cost 4: If the Shipment has a refnum called TRIP_TYPE, and the value is DNR4,
add a charge for 100% of the base cost.
Cost 5: If the Shipment has a refnum called TRIP_TYPE, and the value is DNR,
add a charge for 50% of the base cost.
Multi-costs rule: Take the MAXIMUM of the costs, because if the Shipment has
both the DNR3 and DNR4 refnum, we only want one charge, the higher charge
Shipment is rated, but of RGCG 21, only the 60.34 is applied.
