Improve suspend and resume options for subscriptions

Using orders in Zuora

Currently Zuora only supports that a suspended subscription can be resumed within a current term.

Example:
Subscriber has a subscription 3 month termed that will be renewed to evergreen after that first term.

The subscriber is allowed to suspend the subscription. This will result in no invoices being created during the suspension. 

As now in Zuora the subscription needs to be resumed withing that first term. 

As suggested without this rule the date for resume could be set 5 months from now. When resumed the term would continue as agreed upon.

How it is today
-Customer buys 3 month termed subscription 2019-01-01 (Will be renewed to evergreen)
-Customer is only allowed to suspend subscription withing term 2019-02-01 - 2019-02-28

My suggestions
-Customer buys 3 month termed subscription 2019-01-01 (Will be renewed to evergreen)
-Customer is allowed to suspend subscription 2019-02-01 - 2019-07-01 (5 months in this case) with action to continue the term after resume true/false (up to company to set true or false).
-Customers subscription is resumed 2019-07-01 and from that date the term will continue for another 2 months before it is renwed to evergreen.
