Hi Peter, thanks for raising this important topic.
I think the following trello card has a similar idea and a patch attached. https://trello.com/c/JnhOEqow It would be great if we can simplify the naming of datasets, especially if you run a workflow with several input, you would like to keep the input name through the whole workflow to the end.
