Sorry - I thought you were still talking about tool XML files.

I'm not sure that there are any dynamic variables you can
use in the workflow rename action to access properties
of the tool that created the history item - but being able
to use ${tool.param_name} or ${tool.input_file.name} or
something like that could be quite powerful (where my
made up syntax is $tool for the tool which created the
history entry, and then dot and a tool parameter as
named in the tool's XML). It would be possible even to
expose those fields via the web interface, but for a
first pass having an expert user type them in by hand
would work.
