The key use case I am thinking of is an easy way to add a value to the
the response.  In SQL:

SELECT name,'hello' FROM ...

With this syntax you can now use:


The existing syntax is totally ridiculous:

fl=name,{!transformer name=value value=hello}

I see a real need to be able to pass a simple value to a transformer.
Explain is just one of many examples.
