Ability to change/cancel timer while in Timoeout Notification thread

    RFE Review. Thank you for taking the time to raise this request for enhancement and apologies it has remained in Submitted status for so long. The use case is presented well, and we agree that this could potentially help in some architectural situations. Status of the RFE is updated to Uncommitted Candidate.
