What exactly are we referring to here? Is it this paragraph?

Upon receiving the <success/> element, the client MUST then ask the
connection manager to restart the stream. It does this by setting to
"true" the 'xmpp:restart' attribute (qualified by the 'urn:xmpp:xbosh'
namespace) of the BOSH <body/> element. When sending the restart
request, the client SHOULD also include the 'to' and 'xml:lang'
attributes. In addition the <body/> MUST be empty (if the client
includes an XML stanza in the body, the connection manager SHOULD ignore
it but MAY send that stanza when the stream is restarted; however there
is no guarantee that a connection manager will send the stanza so a
client cannot rely on this behavior).
