yes but it can be adjusted in the test script recorder if your application
has long running requests

you have control on this through Transaction name /prefix.
Next version improves this.

No because this setting will hide information to the web report.
The web report can filter children of a TC provided you apply the naming

As you can set the name of TC during recording + duration you have control.
You can still move children in the initial TC if needed.

Bit still we can improve

This os due to the fact that samplers are added to tree on respinse comes
back, so we could add them ince request is sent instead.
