Edward Lam wrote in November:

On your VOP *network*, drag the label of the ramp parameter name into
the Type Properties window of your HDA. You will notice that in the
newly created parameter in the Type Properties, there is a path
automatically filled out path pointing to the parameter that you dragged
from. Now hit Accept. You should now see the entire ramp parameter
promoted to your HDA.


The thread goes on to say there's no way to set the defaults... except an
on-create script or something. bad ....
