  We have __no requirement of compatibility__,
so why it should be necessarily
(1)   80-th port on browser side for 'messages of server by its initiative' ?
(2.1) exactly HTTP ?
   (for example, i'd like to prefer XML instead of HTTP.
   Besides my taste, this has consequences, going far:
   if we accept XML for backward messages,
   then there is hope,
   that we shall be able to replace HTTP by XML for forward messages
   - for messages, which we use now).
(2.2) current HTTP without extension ?

  Apparently browser's window should send indentified of itself
with <meta name=register content=785>.
