It is not much different from being blocked because there is currently nothing to send. The timeout will clean up connections that do not make progress. If the application is happy with waiting a very long time to proceed, it could send pings, but it might as well want to call it a day. So I'm not sure the spec needs to say anything about that. We are talking about 10 minutes of no progress by default.
