Timeouts for processes

In a legal setting, we want to use Activiti to model the (human) workflow tasks involved. For some of the processes, we want to specify a timeout (or deadline) within which the process in question has to finish.

1. One way seems the boundary timer event. Is it correct that we would then need to create a subprocess, add the timer event to it, and then specify _embedded_ the sequence of steps to which the timeout applies? In other words, can we specify that a bunch of steps time out this way?

2. Is this supported in the modeler (or will it be soon?)

3. Alternatively, what can we do?
