Tradeup Request Parameter

The behavior of the tradeup parameter has been modified.

When executing on a request for D-U-N-S A with tradeUp=hq set, the current behavior checks that D-U-N-S Number A can be returned through the API (meets data sufficiency and product availablity rules); if not, an error message is returned.

That behavior has changed so it no longer matters if D-U-N-S A can be returned; instead it only checks if the HQ D-U-N-S Number is can be returned.
