There can be 2 ways

1. Make them part of request json itself say by placing them under
`_ow_env` key
2. Or introduce a new explicit env param to the run method call

#1 would be compatible. We can also introduce some convention for such
system generated values like start with '__' or '__ow_<key name>' etc to
avoid collision in future for such changes
