Allow CDO update rules to update the contact

Update rules in a CDO program canvas can currently only update the CDO. There are use cases where you need to copy a CDO field value into a contact field (or set a static value). The only half decent workaround today is to send the contact to a contact program and update the contact field from there. This works for static values but is unable to copy the CDO field value to the contact field.

The only other alternatives are cdo record services to save the value to contact field (which actually fits the use case) but this has limited filter/desicion options compared to programs. The second would be to use the form submit app but this would generate api calls and people might get stuck (+ pollutes the activity log) and still cannot submit cdo values.
