Pass a property from an msi to merge module?

i have an msi that consumes one of our internal merge modules. I need to pass it some properties so that the merge module gets installed to an msi defined location. i also need to pass a property that is used in the merge modules registry?

is this possible? i have considered getting the msi to write the values to the registry and then getting the msm to read these values and use them but i am sure there is a better way!

any help appreciated

Ultimately mergemodule will be a part of your MSI and during installation it reads both as a single database. It is very much possible to read MSI property from MSM.
Create a property in MSI and while building your mergemodule make sure that you use that property at the required place.
