The default value for the 'exec' type's 'timeout' is not published in the documentation

I recently ran into an exec timeout. The error was intuitive enough, but even debug mode didn’t display what the default is.
I checked out http://docs.puppetlabs.com/references/stable/type.html#exec and it also didn’t specify it, although it indicated that it is non-zero.
https://github.com/puppetlabs/puppet/blob/master/lib/puppet/type/exec.rb#L218 – an IRC user referred me – reveals that it is 300.
Can this data be published in the documentation? Perhaps dynamically?
