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:

*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.

Let's see how 2.2 data approach fares.
