8.2 Data Page issues

After upgrading to 8.2.1 from 7.1.9, we began seeing a number of issues for DPs and their references.

Issue #1 - providing the data page parameter name is now required even if the DP only has a single param

The data pages in question have a single parameter, referenced in other rules without providing the parameter name, e.g. D_MyPage["somevalue"] rather than D_MyPage[MyParam: "somevalue"]. If there is only one parameter to a data then why require a named parameter in references? Is there any setting or way to turn this off? We could have 100s if not 1000s of rules that will require refactoring and no easy way to search them all without a full bulk revalidate and save.

Issue #2: Data pages sourced from report definitions do not load

Data pages with a source of report definition are all failing to load, but without providing much in terms of exception/stacktrace information. The underlying reports run, but when unit testing the DPs, no results are returned, although the tracer shows (up to the last step) that the results were fetched.. just not apparently transferred to the DP. At runtime however, errors are showing in the tracer, very generic error message
