Yes, idle timeout on a periodic sweep is likely better than assuming that a timer is in play.  As @marten-seemann says, anything we say here is in optimization territory.  It is likely a very useful optimization, but we don't need to say too much in the spec unless there is an interop or security hazard.  Offhand, I can't see anything other than a resource exhaustion problem, but that's clearly something that the periodic sweep should address.
