I am not sure that /shutdown should be specified. The ChromeDriver has it
for graceful shutdown of their binary from looking at the OSS code but this
is not in the FirefoxDriver,Marionette (Mozilla's implementation) or
IEDriver. I can't find it  documented on the OSS JSON Wire page either.

Is this really needed since it is an implicit action for terminating the
httpd (which has not spec prose for starting it up) when delete session[1]
is called?
