Your examples are manipulating technical parameters.  I would expect 
designers to be interested in subjective behaviour, and therefore want 
to specify the literal values that are subjectively right, not some 
algorithmic approximation.

The over the wire cost of these examples would be higher than sending 
the literal, i.e. a preprocessor would be better.

I would think scripting interfaces would already cope with dynamic, 
client side, manipulation.
