=> I have a question which is in fact the response: is your concern
the fact you can't see these timers at the global scope, or the fact
there are some subnets where no specific timer values are configured
and a default value copied from the global scope is not configured?

PS: if the action of deriveParams (src/lib/cc/simple_parser.h) is misleading
we have somewhere the code of a factorParams doing the opposite.
It was considered as too complex and potentially even more misleading
(i.e. clearly against the least astonishment principle) so was not adopted.
