[zeromq-dev] What ZMQ socket state is maintained upon disconnect?

Lines like "• SHALL create a queue when a subscriber connects to it. If this subscriber disconnects, the PUB socket SHALL destroy its queue and SHALL discard any messages it contains." from the PUBSUB RFC lead me to believe that while the protocol dictates automatic reconnects upon connection loss, the listening side is not required to maintain state?

i.e., the only socket maintaining state about (like subscriptions, queued messages, etc.) is the connecting socket, correct?
