I originally meant "by the user".

I think we need that support though.

Are you saying that we are to control that logic in lmi?

I agree with you on that specific point.

I think there's just one variable that varies across all axes in the 
current prototype, but we really need to be able to change the 
dimensionality of the axes. Almost all of our data varies on fewer 
than all axes, usually three or four of the seven available, but 
there's no way to limit the axes that shouldn't vary.

I got that impression from Greg's email here
which discusses the popup dialog.
