  I think there are two orthogonal things here: the convenient user input facility (besides plain strings, you can use a select file dialog box, but also a calendar selection, etc.)  And in addition, you can either give the data in the scenario, or ask for interactive input each time the scenario is run.

  I was asking for the second feature here (interactive input,) but sure, I think the first one (different input methods) is very interesting too!
