AFAICT, the only thing a user can set regarding how a query result will be displayed is which default view is set, using the #defaultView:[NAME] comment.
There are numerous other potential settings which could be useful. For example, in the graph layout one might want to organize things vertically, or turn off the behaviour where when an object is clicked on all properties are displayed. When a timeline is used, one may want to not have Jan 1 - June 1 and June 1 - Dec 1 considered as overlapping, which causes a much messier timeline.
There should be a standard format for more specific settings for query results displays.
