Summary: Inline Query template use - Passing Static Arguments

I've got a couple areas of my wiki where I could use an inline query template
like this:

* {{{1}}} {{#if:{{{2}}} |
** {{{2}}}: {{{3}}} }} {{#if:{{{4}}} |
** {{{4}}}: {{{5}}} }} {{#if:{{{6}}} |
** {{{6}}}: {{{7}}} }} etc.

I've got this great search engine and I'd like the user to pick what
information they want listed.  It would be easy to set up the inline query to
pass only certain values to the template.  What I'm missing is a way to pass a
fixed string to a template through in inline query.  To illustrate, my querey
would be something like:

{{#ask: [[Category:BuildClassifier]]
{{#if: {{{BuildMaterialSelected|}}} | 
|(send "Build Material") 
| ?Has BuildMaterial= 
}} }}
{{#if: {{{BuildLocationSelected|}}} |  
| (send "Build Location") 
| ?Has BuildLocation= 
}} }}
{{#if: {{{BuildCostSelected|}}} |  
| (send "Build Cost") 
| ?Has BuildCost= 
}} }}

My alternative is to be less flexible with the output, or to create every
possible permutation.  My real pages have 7-10 parameters, so the latter won't
work out too well.
