So you would go like this?
new -> connecting -> connected/completed -> disconnected -> connected/completed
Rather than this?
new -> connecting -> connected/completed -> connecting -> connected/completed

I think "disconnected" sounds like something you are when you're not connecting, connected, closed, failed or new. As in "no error occurred and I haven't given up yet by closing". But as soon as I attempt to connect again I would expect "connecting". Would it make more sense to always be "connecting" if you are not already connected or have "disconnected" be an intermediate state like so?

new -> connecting -> connected/completed -> disconnected -> connecting -> connected/completed

> - Neither of the "new" states allow transports to be "connected" or "completed" any more. The states that would have previously ended up covered here are now "connected" instead.

Would "connecting" and "completed" also apply here instead of "new"?
