Well there's another discussion :-)

It would be very simple to support parameterized tests (of some form), 
where the number of tests can be known at test load time. Supporting 
generative tests - where the tests are generated at *test run time* is 

Would parameterized tests, where the tests are all generated at test 
load time, suffice or do you have a use case for generative tests where 
the tests have to be generated whilst the tests are running and not when 
the tests are loaded?
