can you elaborate this in more detail?

The idea behind SGE is to select a queue for you according to the  
given resource requests (in contrast to other queuing systems where  
you submit into a queue).

The resource requests will be used by SGE to schedule it to a queue  
which fulfills the request - hence they must be known. Requesting a  
queue and resources at the same time may be redundant. Do you want  
some values in the jobscript having certain values, which the scripts  
should use?

PS: Nevertheless, when I get you right: give all queues all  
parameters, and the not appropriate one set to a high value (assuming  
they are consumable), e.g.:

q1: param1=3,param2=9,param3=27,param4=9999,param5=9999,param6=9999
q2: param1=9999,param2=9999,param3=9999,param4=16,param5=8,param6=4

qsub -l param1=3,param2=9,param3=27,param4=16,param5=8,param6=4  
should run in both queues.
