It was in the goals of p2 to allow for this and especially to achieve to do what you are mentioning (reusing common config) however I don't think we are quite there yet because we never needed it in eclipse.
At this point, the only way I could see this work is if the IU providing the value is installed before the IU using it (and you could store your touchpoint to store the value) but this is dependent on the order in which the IUs are being processed which is currently not guaranteed (see bug 327127). Otherwise you may try to set the value as an IU fragment but I don't have a clear idea how this may work.
In short I'm afraid that we don't have a solution for you, but something could surely be done. If all the references to your variables are handled by the same touchpoint, then you had some spare cycle to help address bug 327127 then we could definitely make it work.
