By tunneling, the doc intends to mean only that frames are tunneled, I
think. Sorry that we didn't try to address this point it in -00 but we can
drop "don't send any message before receiving response" restriction over
the proposed layering though it also requires API side change to be

It'll be speculative message sending (subprotocol negotiation and extension
are not yet negotiated). So, if we want to make this non-speculative, we
need to move these negotiation stuff into some earlier step. I don't care
subprotocol much, but extensions should.
