Our management tool provides a NETCONF API for configuration and for
operational state. MOBIKE can be enabled or disabled in configuration.
The value of providing this information in operational state is to known
whether the configuration is properly applied.

The "list-sa" request already provides many information, so I thought it
was the proper place to add one more, that could be useful for others
(at least it is useful for us).
