Load default prompt set values from a VARA object using {VARA,KEY,COLUMN} references

Has anyone tried to create a prompt set whose default values come from a VARA object? I thought this might be a nice way to store and recall each user’s most recently used values. Here is what I have in mind:

The &$USER# variable is resolved to the ID of the executing user; then the enclosing VARA object reference (in the format {VARA,KEY,COLUMN}) is resolved.

The only problem with this approach is that if the specified VARA object, key, or column does not exist, the VARA object reference will not be resolved at all, and this may not be desirable.
