ALLOW FILTERING should be renamed PROBABLY TIMEOUT in order to properly
describe its typical performance.

As a general statement, if you have to ALLOW FILTERING, you are probably
Doing It Wrong in terms of schema design.

A correctly operated cluster is unlikely to need to increase the default
timeouts. If you find yourself "needing" to do so, you are, again, probably
Doing It Wrong.
