I thought "connection" usually meant something close to what you call
"stream".  E.g. to "close the connection" means that the communication
is torn down completely.

How about "connection" for your "stream", and "LDAP <layer? stream?>"
for your "connection"?

Or e.g. IPsec, I hope.  Since you say:
