HTTP Compliance

Severity: - Keywords:


REQ.7 currently states:

When sharing host and "well known" port with HTTP, the
WebSocket protocol MUST be HTTP compatible until both ends have
established the WebSocket protocol.

at the Anaheim meeting there was some consensus to change this to "HTTP compliant".
However there is a lot of misunderstanding about what compliance to HTTP means and implies.
The Requirement draft should clarify it, as it may have non trivial impact on the protocol design.
