Allow "Export Type to IFC As" be defined by Formulas

Allow "Export Type to IFC As" be defined by Formulas

The new "Export Type to IFC As" parameter available in RVT 2023 with dorp-down dialog of IFC entities is a great improvement to the UI. However please allow this to be defined by a formulas similar to any other text parameter.

In previous Revit versions we used the IfcExportAs parameter with values pre-defined by a formula for certain components to lock down how they get exported and to reduce inadvertent changes by users within the project environment. The new parameter now supersedes/overrules any value previously defined by IfcExportAs and so the previous workflow is now redundant. (...and yes educating users is important, but this is still a new thing to check/manage)
