I have a script that does something like this:

app.activeDocument.dataMergeProperties.mergeRecords();

How can the operation be stopped or cancelled under script control, for example if the user decides it's taking too long?

This script is running in a designated targetengine

However, I doubt you will be able to fine tune that to break an existing method call as you mentioned.
