Santa Claus already did this long time ago, but is not a so kind person and he forgot the documentation.
First, it is possible to build "procedures" http://paparazzi.enac.fr/wiki/Flight_Plans#Procedures that can be called from the flight plan with some parameters http://paparazzi.enac.fr/wiki/Flight_Plans#Includes
For some flight patterns (go, circle), it is possible to define a relative position using wp_qdr and wp_dist. For example <go wp="HOME" wp_qdr="90" wp_dist="100" radius="80"/> will create a new relative waypoint 100 meters at the east (90 deg heading) of HOME.
If you make a combination of the two, you can have something like the clover.xml procedure (forget the outdated exception, and some variables need to renamed). In this procedure that makes flower in the sky, the size of the pattern can be set by the "rad" parameter from the flight plan. You can do the same kind of things for orientation.
Obviously, this is not really easy to use, but one of the reason for not using all of this was that it was not that useful in the end.
