i mean as a param. If you use ":tagname "it should work. Ex from unit tests :

           {
              "from": "simpleForm/basicViewPath/:start/:end",
              "to": "_list/simpleForm/basicView",
              "query": {
                "startkey": ":start",
                "endkey": ":end"
              }
            },
