If we want to allow parameter editors to be configurable, we should look at allowing macro parameters to render 'data types' that are configured, however, the data type's that are allowed to be rendered would only be those property editors that are explicitly allowed to be a Parameter Editor or any explicit IParameterEditor implementation.

Further to this, there will be cases where the pre-values for a parameter editor will be different from those of a property editor. This is when a Property Editor cannot be 'reused' specifically for a parameter editor, this is when you'd have a different IParameterEditor that shares the parts of the Property Editor. We could explore this in more detail later but there will be interface breaking changes so would need to wait till v8.
