RE: UAs shipping unprefixed websocket API implementations?

+Alexey (2nd editor on the HyBi websockets spec).

Yes, the compression scheme currently in the draft will most probably be dropped in the next revision. "Most probably" because that was the consensus in the f2f meeting last week, but in the IETF, all decision have to be confirmed on the mailing list. That confirmation is going on right now and I don't anticipate any issues with it (so it's a very strong 'most probably').

The minutes of the meeting have been published and capture the state of the latest resolutions:

FYI, slides and agenda for last week's meeting are here: 

The editors will be preparing a revision based on those resolutions. We *hope* to go to the IESG for their discussion and final approval of the spec this month.
