On this one, I had thought it was fairly simple:  we're based in HTTP currently, and we should say it's the HTTP request and its matching response(s).  However, if the user-agent keeps the TCP connection open (which happens), then there is data at the server which is kept beyond that (notably, the IP address).  Do we need to address this specifically, or can we merely note it, and that the client has the choice to close connections and thus clean this up?
