      How about having a mixed mode for state saving whereby state is initially kept on server for a configurable amount of time (so that fast frequent requests are served without transferring the state from client to server several times, the drawback with client side saving) & after that period of time if the page is still alive in browser but it is idle, a javascript request is triggered which asks the server for that state data & now it will be kept on client side, now the client & the server both know that state for this session is there on client. If the page has died & no request has been sent to server asking for state data till that period of time, then state data would be removed from server.

      A further enhancement could be that you could set a fixed amount out of all memory on server that you want to allocate for state saving of all sessions. Till the time that quota remains, state is kept on server using that quota. But when that quota is over all the state information for further sessions is kept using client side state saving. Also a mixed mode.

      Such mixed modes would be very helpful in improving performance, & better utilization of the server resources.
