Allow "System" shared parameters to be loaded into families

Allow "System" shared parameters to be loaded into families

The family templates contain shared parameters like length, height, ect. that to my understanding are not accessible to the public.  The typical solution would to make a separate shared parameter with the same name, which leads to confusion and further fractures the usefulness of the "Shared Parameter" feature.

Since labels already maintain a "system" list of shared parameters, it is strange to me that I have not found any way for custom families to load them.  This would dramatically improve the standardization of user-created models, and benefit the community.
