Closed as program error.
In Rational Developer for z Systems v9.5.1 with Data Studio v4.1.2 installed in the same package, right clicking on the MVS sub-project of a host based project with colon (:) in the name does not display the context menu "Add Data Development Access support".
The action provider was searching through the available Eclipse projects and was not finding the project in question because it's name included a colon (":"), something which is only supported with Host Based Projects. Such projects have the colon in their Eclipse prjoect name changed to "U+0x3A" so that the backing file for the Eclipse project does not violate Windows file naming rules.
The problem listed in this APAR has been resolved with IBM Rational Developer for z Systems V188.8.131.52 Fix Pack which is available from the Recommended Fixes support download page: http://www-1.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?rs=2294&uid=swg27006335
