Many thanks, @mfoltzgoogle!

> * Do we think developers would want to keep closed connections around in the list for bookkeeping reasons? For example, to keep track of data for previously connected controllers/players, which could be transferred to a new connection if they rejoin the game.

Yes, but developers can use controller's/player's ID at an application layer to recognize reconnection from the same controller, for example.

> * Do we need to add a `connectionremoved` event to PresentationConnectionList? Presumably the receiving page will have already added a state change handler to

No. A `close` event fired at a PresentationConnection seems to be sufficient.

Okay, I understand that the first option has benefit in terms of implementation and protocol design. Now, my concern is simply that closed presentation connections which are no longer useful for the receiving page still remain in a PresentationConnectionList.
