Variable Passing in ODAG

I would like the ability to pass variable values from the selection app to the template app through ODAG. I have a mashup where I am getting a value from a user and want to pass it through ODAG, but there is no finite limit of values that the user could enter, so generating this as a field value would not work, a variable would be required.

Please!! it is absolutely necessary!! 

Example: user writes down his/her comment in the selection app and this comment is visible in the per ODAG generated app.

Its critical to allow user to type free text and pass to template app to get data. For huge data volume to load into selection app just for user selection compromise the benefits of using odag.

Another use case: I want to bring some info about my aggregate data (such as overall totals, category totals, ranking information, etc) in the selection app into the on-demand app.  For example:

Selection app:

Displays Revenue by Category, user selects a category to generate ODAG for.  In the selection app, I want to be able to calculate total revenue for all categories & pass as a variable value to ODAG.

 

On-Demand app:

Displays Revenue by Product within a Category selected in Selection app (ie, by filtering a query for a specific Category).  However since I am now looking at a filtered subset of data I no longer have access to overall total revenue across all categories (without making a second, slow data pull which is not ideal)
