Not new data, _any_ data. This was deliberate. See Section 5.3.1: "When the PTO timer expires, and there is new or previously sent unacknowledged data, it MUST be sent." The point of this text was to send data if available, new or previously sent. In the case that we are discussing the server is supposed to send a PING, but it might have data to send.
