To my understanding, these codes are used by browser and server layer.
For example, 1003 may mean the browser doesn't support binary type frames
in its WebSocket protocol stack.

Meaning of application level binary support will depend on application level
subprotocols. You may want to define application level close code in
the range 3000 to 4999 to notify that client doesn't support some
kinds of features.
Or you can define some feature negotiating frameworks over your subprotocols.

Application level error code could be useful for server side
application handler.
In this case, it doesn't matter if the server side protocol stack
itself understand
these application level codes.
