I don't think we have a good description of what parameters are being sent to the service when binding to flat data.
My understanding is that it will essentially request all data from the service and use cube schema
to reconstruct the cube on the client.
The additional parameters then are simply an indication of what is currently being shown that allow the service implementation to optimize.
I'll check with the developers to confirm.
