Is that a suggestion or a question? I'm just suggesting that query links 
that are referred to by a synonym provided by a user may have some 
interesting issues when attempting to share them. I don't mean to 
suggest that it is insurmountable of course.

I am not sure that users will want their servers to be sending data to 
google. I think I would prefer to explore other solutions.

Well, this is only part of the solution. In fact when you try it, at 
least in bloodhound currently, you require the variable to be set in the 
querystring. I am pretty much suggesting that we could have a view with 
a control to provide the ability to set that value.
