Manny, you're right that presets don't work for dynamic data, but that's
a software limitation that can and (hopefully soon) will be improved.
There's a few ideas I'm considering such as completely scriptable
presets or dynamic values similar to formulas in Excel.

I understand your point that the ACS will not be able to restore
previous configuration if the device was reset. This is a valid point,
but it's not trivial to implement because you can never assume you'll be
getting the exact same data model (e.g. different object instance
indices or order). Additionally, restoring all parameters exactly as
they were defeats the purpose of factory reset. With dynamic presets, it
will be possible to restore certain explicitly defined parameters after
the device is defaulted.
