Separate HTTP message format and under-hood transport as two specs should
earn expansibility and portability.

Actually, Web app runs above HTTP and don't care what's transport to use.
And, the different transport can provide the specific benefits.
For example, UDP is easy to setup P2P communication, TCP is for
client/server communication and SPDY for multiplexing connection.

Best regards
