 > Doesn't the user get a warning to log in again before their session
 expires in the customizer?

 Once their session expires, the user gets prompted to re-login. But the
 nonces generally have a shorter lifespan than the user sessions, so this
 would ensure the nonces remain valid for the entire session, unless… if
 they sleep their computer with the Customizer open for a day, and then
 wake their computer: the nonces will have expired, including the nonce for
 Heartbeat itself. So in this case, it seems the only solution would be for
 the user to reload the Customizer, or I suppose a prompt to re-login would
 have the same effect.
