Apps running for the session context should still get terminated when 
the session ends. If they are not part of the session process tree they 
don't get automatic tear down when the session terminates, without 
external entity. And the applications should terminate completely before 
the session is finalized.

We know it is correct, because we just used it to create the session. When a launch request is made the session information that was used to create the session is available because to was explicitly sent to AMD.

Some of the information for the session is built up as part of session 
initialization, such as dbus session bus address. This is not known 
before the dbus-daemon is started, because it is created by the daemon 
at startup time.

What I would prefer is to avoid need to take a "session state snapshot" 
at some point and transfer it over to somewhere else, but use the way it 
is done on normal Linux desktop through the session lifetime inheritance.
