Comment:
The abstract could be improved by pointing out that "WebSocket protocol" is
defined by the IETF, while this API specifies the browser API to use that
protocol.

"The send(data) method transmits data using the connection. If the readyState
attribute is CONNECTING, it must throw an InvalidStateError exception." - What
happens for the other non-OPEN states? 

"unpaired surrogates" is mentioned in three places, but not defined anywhere.
What is that? In the same context, "with prejudice" is mentioned multiple
times, only referencing the WebSockets protocol (instead of defining that),
but the protocol doesn't mention that term.
