You're absolutely right, sorry, I did misread your email as two separate 
issues.  Workflow parameters are currently unavailable via the API. 

Instead of making actions settable at runtime and directly available through 
the API, I will probably implement parameters via API as the path forward here.

Thanks for all your interest!
