Here's some text from the issue:

 >>> Web Sockets API: in scope?

The charter places it in scope. No need for a question.

 >>> requirement? coordination
 >>> Is this something the WG supports as a requirement for this 
release? Who is interested in contributing test materials for web sockets?

An obnoxiously literal reading could exclude this capability as a hard 
requirement, but such a reading would also preclude accepting a solution 
developed in the IETF.

I claim that the spirit of the charter assigns the HTML WG to develop a 
solution if an acceptable solution does not emerge from elsewhere in a 
timely fashion.
