No way to globally clean up data

When an element data is leaked (for example because it was detached/off-DOM and we lost reference to it) there is no way to get rid of its data. This matters in tests run in watch mode as leaks can accumulate & crash the browser.

The only alternative now seems to be initializing jQuery from scratch when we desire a clean environment. This is a little difficult now due to the fact that jQuery doesn't expose any initializing function so the lib would have be loaded once again (which, again, is not so easy/natural in many test frameworks).

Angular 1.3 betas were recently switched to use jQuery 2.1 instead of 1.x and this problem has arisen; see: https://github.com/angular/angular.js/issues/8532

*If* we end up attaching data directly to nodes the problem may mostly go away. Mostly since we still may have leftover data from special events etc.
