They are my proposals for TODO items to assist with application
development. 

Waiting around DDL is just one reason to want those, though there are
other similar issues with locking. I had one client with a program that
waited for 57 hours before they noticed. statement_timeout was not an
appropriate way to manage that and some form of timeout makes better
sense. NOWAIT means extra programming to handle that case, rather than
raising a normal error, so isn't always possible to change the app
source.
