"Memory leak" when using HTML File #565

When transferring a lot of data via the HTMLFile transport, I see a steady increase in browsers memory usage. This only happens with the HTMLFile transport, not with XHR-polling.
As far as I understand, this is due to the fact how HTMLFile works: It is a script tag which is streamed infinitely to the browser. Since the browser has to retain all the scripts, mem usage will increase.
Wouldn't it be possible to clear the script tag from time to time, thus reducing memory consumption?
