No, but you can redefine one of the system variables. For instance, if
you don't need the Current Date (Short) variable, select it in the
Variable dialog and click Edit Definition. In the Edit System Variable
dialog, replace the existing definition with <$year>. 

You can redefine any system variable, using the items in the Building
Blocks list.
