Yes, I think so.

Howabout if it had a different extension, or a custom loader?

#parse ("thingy.var")
#parse ("thingy.vm")

Parse just asks the loader(s) to go find "thingy.vm", right? 
Normally, this might be found using a file rsrc or webapp rsrc loader,
perhaps a third loader in the chain might go looking inside the
Request/Session/App bags?

Or maybe there is a way to have *.var trigger the custom resource loader?

Because the template of A.THINGY will be variable, possibly from a database,
or possibly from a form input (think real-time render).
