It isn't the "mappings" that support dynamic parameters. It's the result

What you are trying to say is that you would wish that all bundled result
types parse their parameters. I don't think anybody would disagree with that.

I'm not sure what that means.

You know the source is available, right?

While in "real life" you actually *do* catch more flies with vinegar than
honey, it's suggested that when dealing with actual people you follow the
*spirit* of maxims such as this, necessitating the need to occasionally
ignore any underlying untruths. Your current tactic is sub-optimal.

Make a patch. File a JIRA. Update the documentation. I already did the
legwork for you in identifying which plugins may need to be changed, making
filing the JIRA that much easier and tracking down the Wiki pages that need
to be updated fairly trivial.
