I agree, I was thinking something similar too. There's a step to pick 
the larger decisions (implementations of resource types) and then a 
refresh that will ask Heat to recalculate the full set of parameters.

This is similar to what Tuskar API was looking to do. I think it'd be 
awesome to see Heat support it natively.
