The addition of dynamic text through expressions in QGIS 2 is awesome! Unfortunately I still need to fill out the coordinate system in every map I create. It would be really useful to have the datum, projection, false Eastings, False Nothings and spheroid as expressions to be added to the label function. This would provide a means for creating a fully automated template for professional use

Hi I believe that this request would be nice to be implemented soon as I think it wouldn't be too complicated to obtain the parameters. I agree with Nicholas that this is really needed since doing manual input is prone to errors (if I forget to change a projection)

Antonio - the issue is that at the moment there's no contextual support for expressions. This is a prerequisite before adding additional expression functions which only have meaning in a composer context.
