I don't want to see a new time a big class for the store part. it must be
splitted in few domains.
All named queries related to Project would be defined in the Project class,
all named queries related to ProjectGroup would be defined in the
ProjectGroup class...

And we can add some more classes for particular results that aren't entities
objects (we won't have a lot)

With this, all concerns are separated and linked to a specific entity. Easy
to code, easy to read, easy to understand. It's my opinion.

I hope you are now ;-)
