[eventsource] Connection close on EventSource collection

Multiple EventSource instances may share the same underlying connection.  If
this happens, and just one EventSource object is collected (eg. a tab
closed), the connection shouldn't be closed--it's still in use.

Should this instead cancel the fetch algorithm for the EventSource, as with
"aborting a document load" (HTML5)?
