As a reporting user I want to use a default-value formula to get default values for cascading parameters when the parent parameter changes

      Description

      At the moment, the default value formula is only evaulated if the parameter has a null-value. If the user ends up with an invalid value after changing an other parameter, we should let the default-value-formula jump in again to provide a sensible default.

      Changes needed:
      (1) Change the parameter evaluation so that failed strict parameter checks revalidate with <null> values.
      (2) Change the Swing UI to actually pick up computed values during subsequent parameter updates
      (3) Make all of that configurable on a per-parameter basis via two new flags: "autofill-selection" and "re-evaluate-on-failed-values".
