Free Text User Definable Report Title in Webi

Hi all.
I have a requirement to provide my users with a user definable report title where they can type what they want the report title to be. In Actuate & Crystal (if my memory serves me correct) we could easily create 'free text' parameters to send data into the report.

With a Webi generated against a Universe I haven't found an easy way to create a 'dummy parameter' to catch the user's input. Everything in the query must be a dimension or detail in the Universe.

I've got something working by creating an independent dummy query with an 'OR'ed query filter to catch the input to be echoed out into the report by a UserResponse function (below).

Wow this seems like a lot of work. I've got to be missing something. What's the simplest, easiest, most robust way to do this in a Webi built against a Universe?
