I believe I was told that shared activation groups was an idea that
never went anywhere - no way to set - no way to use. Unfortunately
it is displayed on DSPPGM and DSPSRVPGM, I think.
I can't recall details right now, but the notion of shared AGs was
incorporated into the original ILE design and was implemented for
system code with the notion that it might be available for user code
at a later date.
In practice IBM's own internal experiences with using them were so
disastrous that most (all?) code that used them was changed to avoid
them as quickly as possible.
