report_rom clarification about the validity of ROMs in case the report session was closed

I (more precisely: a student of mine) noticed that a ROM provided by the report_rom is cleared once the corresponding Report session is closed. I looked at the implementation, which intentionally clears the dataspace when the writer (i.e. the report session) is unregistered from the Rom_module. I'm curious about the reason for this. More specifically, I am wondering why the report_rom does not invalidate and notify the registered ROM sessions after the content was cleared. Currently, the ROM clients will just see that the content disappeared without getting any signal, which seems a bit counterintuitive/inconsistent to me.
