Is it possible to name certain dimensions for configurations rather than the default?

When using configurations that have multiple instances in one sketch, it would be helpful to have them be distinct names that could be set. I know that when you hover over the values in the table that it will highlight them, but I would also like to be able to quickly see it in the table, especially as a part gets more complex. 

Examples of Names: Overall Length, Overall Width, Arm Length, Arm Width, Gear Width
I understand that you can name the inputs when you "Add configuration input" or edit the top level name (in my pictured example, "Configuration"), but in this instance I need each configured part to have all of the values predetermined rather than having to select each combination. It would be great to know what the values correspond to as actual parts.

    I know it would be an extra step, but could you drive those dimensions with variables and then configure the variables? Wouldn't that show the variable names in the table?
