Support for minCpuPlatform runtime attribute

I was handed a WDL that specifies the parameter "minCpuPlatform" in the runtime section. This appears to correspond to the google cloud platform's "CPU platform" dropdown: (https://console.cloud.google.com/compute/instancesAdd). I put this into the Firecloud method, and it didn't seem to be respected. Is there a way to specify this in Firecloud?

    What backend was this WDL designed to run in originally? Backends, such as FireCloud, are designed to expect certain runtime attributes and ignore ones that don't apply to them. If we can figure out what the original attribute did on the intended backend, I can find out if FireCloud allows something similar.

    Off the top of my head, I know FireCloud can accept a cpu runtime parameter. cpuMin, is a parameter specific to a language called CWL (so not WDL, which you are working with), but that was the closest I could find to your runtime attribute name.
