Technical Summary

   The WebSocket protocol enables two-way real-time communication
   between clients and servers in situations where direct access to TCP
   and UDP are not available (for example, from within Javascript in a
   web browser).  This document specifies a new WebSocket sub-protocol
   as a reliable transport mechanism between MSRP (Message Session Relay
   Protocol) clients and relays to enable usage of MSRP in new
   scenarios.  This document normatively updates RFC 4975 and RFC 4976.
