But you might have a limit you want to enforce regardless of the size or quantity of A & B periods. That's why it needs to be a separate timeout IMHO. Let's say I never want a transaction to be around more than 60 minutes no matter what. But I also don't want idle in transaction to ever exceed 30 seconds, and I don't expect individual statements to exceed 10 minutes.
