I looked at how for example WebSockets and EventSource exposes error
information. I would have thought in both cases that it would have
been done as a property on the websocket/eventsource object itself.
However I couldn't find any such property, and since the "error"
events fired by both specifications are simple Events it doesn't
appear as if the information is exposed on the event object either.

Do neither of these specifications make error information available?
