Sounds fine as there might exists datastores which doesn't support these

The "Query Timeout" shall be an option only for the JDO queries themself.
Keep in mind that the idea of JDO was to support any kind of datastore,
which means there exists implementations which don't use any kind of
datastore queries for operations like relationship navigation,
findByObjectId and lasy loading of collections.

Query.execute(), but from a Vendor persective i would suggest that
we allow both and it shouldn't be gurantied that this value is exact,
as the underlying datastore might have some kind of tolerance for the
or has different resolution for there timer.
