Several different approaches have been attempted:
1. Another line of tabs underneath the main tabs.
2. Using pills and a two-pane display.
3. Using scrollspy for faster navigation.

However, it seems the consensus is that neither of these solutions look very well, either by preventing a quick overview of all parameters or by adding another confusing list of headers that link to incorrect positions.
Since overriding inline has been implemented for class parameters and will also be added for global parameters, it seems this table is better left as is at the moment as the length of the table and its complexity should be reduced.
Closing for now as rejected. If anyone has a better suggestion (including wire frames or an example) that will work better this can be reopened.
