Dynamic alarm names?

For notification settings we have dynamic text fields for subject and message. What would it take to apply the same settings to the “Alert Name” and “Display Path” field? While there has been talk of updating the alarming scheme and feature requests, this ranks really high on the list of features we’d like to see.

How dynamic do you want it to be? What fields would you try to reference? Unfortunately, the state name is pretty crucial to the identification of the alert (though last time we designed possible changes to alerting we started with giving them each a unique id, so we didn’t have to depend on the name).

The display path is pretty free form, so we could very possibly make that dynamic, if it would help. In several places the display path is used if set, and the name is only used if the display path is empty.
