Yes it is, I absolutely agree with you that this expression is extreme, and it 
serve it's purpose.

Can anybody find a real-life use-case where query run against persistent state 
but fetched object has transient state ?

Personally I do not see the difference in accessing the date between
But it doesn't even matter, let's take a Hibernate (ORM) for instance.
It has 2 ways of retrieving the data SQL and API. And Hibernate query always 
return transient state of the object.

Today I saw a message from Mark Waschkowski with a good use case.

B.t.w. there are no need to do the full index update, search result always 
post-processed to account for the transient state, that how it usually done.

P.S. Thank you for getting into the discussion.
