@Evan I think we make sure to keep *extensibility* in mind and design
things in a way which will make it straight forward to publish
additional spec later which will enable streaming interfaces!

In dspace-ng modules, I experimented with channels which in javascript
exposed methods channel.read() channel.write() using HTTP
GET/POST/PUT/DELETE and channel.pub() channel.sub() using realtime
messaging over websockets with Bayeux. I believe other people here also
must have some experience in this field...

@Sandro do you have by any chance, already something concrete to share
with us about streaming/push? Maybe something you've discovered working
with Andrei on http://crosscloud.org/ ? :)

Last but not least, pretty much all W3C groups use IRC heavily,
including ourselves. I see more and more people basing their
collaboration on tools like Slack, HipChat, Gitter etc. Also twitter,
facebook etc. all push data to clients in real time. I would say, more
power to everyone who wants to work on enabling real time features for
technology stack we work on here!
