So, what you're saying is that the first part that applies to the
WebSocket API is harmless for us to apply since it doesn't get
rendered into the HTML spec (and our file is not the basis for any
other spec than the HTML and the Canvas spec).

What about the second part the? I checked
http://dev.w3.org/html5/websockets/ and it contains ArrayBuffer. I
assume for consistency it would be good to apply it then?

Thanks for your help.

Cheers,
Silvia.
