How about COMEBACK ?

This seems to make sense with the added context of a stream-id with which to come-back;  i.e. reconnect and resume. And it's rather more fluffy and humanitarian than GTFO.

FWIW, GTFO is like writing OMG WTF on the side of a lunar lander, and is surely not representative of the ideals to which HTTP aspires.
