Need ADW extension capabilities for the Viewer component parameters

Description

The partner has expressed interest to use the ADW extension capabilities for the viewer.

The ADF viewer component has many available parameters.
https://www.alfresco.com/abn/adf/docs/core/components/viewer.component/#custom-layout
In particular, we would like to turn off the ‘allowNavigate’ parameter so that next and previous views are not available based on a rule.

The ADF page for the viewer component describes parameters available to specify the behavior of the viewer component, but that is for new development. In ADW the viewer component already has been defined.

The extensions file is included as part of a plugin and when installed into ADW alters the application behavior.

The extension file has a section for the "viewer" which allows you to customize the viewer behavior, like add custom actions to the drop-down menu on the viewer page.

Currently, the only value that can be customized from the app.config.json is

"viewer.maxRetries": 1

See the complete list from
https://docs.alfresco.com/adw/concepts/configuration.html

Right now it is not possible to configure allowNavigate via app.config.json file.

Feature jira request
In addition to being able to add new menu items to that page, partner like to be able to customize the values of the parameters used for the viewer, like allowNavigate.

Currently this capability doesn't exist, and it is unable to find complete documentation of the available configuration points in the extensions file.
