Because to traverse various "transparent proxies", firewalls, etc.,
it is necessary to make the websocket traffic appear to be something
If you need reliable deployment over the open web, then
port 80 cleartext is not acceptable. Period.
So, we know that there are many mis-implementations, etc.
But there is also the desire of network operators and corporate IT
departments to manipulate web traffic, and maybe that's their right.
Especially for such innocent things as caching.
It's unfortunate that we have been reduced to solving the problem by
implementing better ways to deliberately subvert some corporate
firewall in the name of a user who might be violating his own
