    The Name_ID in the technical description is providing the reference to the Locale_Element in the locale file.
    In many cases the Locale_Element shows a term, which is to be shown unproved in the UI.
    Especially when there is a chance to specify only one record with a formula for a feature instead of many records with single entries, it seems very useful to be able to have the Parameter Converter (in case you are not too familiar with it: the Parameter Converter helps converting formulas to real entries) help to build the UI string.
    Samples could be copies, zooming percentage, resolution, etc.
    We are a little concerned about performance, as this has to happen dynamically every time.
    Let's discuss that on the distributor. Send your opinion to the group.
