Does Connection::send() block?

Hello WG.

1.2T currently says the following for Connection::send():

  This method sends the data over the connection. It transmits a
  sequence of octets without modifying it in any way. A string can be
  transmitted after having been converted to a sequence of octets using
  the stringToBinary method on the SVGGlobal interface.

This doesn’t say whether this blocks when sending, as can be the case
sometimes when using the UNIX send() function, but presumably it
shouldn’t, since that’d be bad.  Can I add a note in there to mention
that this won’t block?
