UI Telemetry is event data and one of the questions asked of event data is what constitutes a "session". This is not the UI Telemetry "session", which is used to scope events.

We could use probes for application-level foreground and background as a way to help define sessions.
Simple patch to add application foreground/background into the event data flow
