Re: [websockets] Moving Web Sockets back to LCWD; is 15210 a showstopper?

The setTimeout comment in the w3 tracker is a pretty good reason. I 
strongly agree with Olli Pettay's comment.

onemptybuffer would bring sockets in line with the server-side "ondrain" 
event that we see in node.js and other socket APIs.
I disagree with Hixie's rationale that we need to give vendors time to 
catch-up before asking them to implement that event.

For a counter-point, AFAIK, we're not doing heavy multiplexing or other 
such exotic items. That's fine. This feature is basic.

>> During WebApps' May 2 discussion about the Web Sockets API CR, four Sockets API bugs were identified as high priority to fix: 16157, 16708, 16703 and 15210. Immediately after that discussion, Hixie checked in fixes for 16157, 16708 and 16703and these changes will require the spec going back to LC.
>> Since 15210 remains open, before I start a CfC for a new LC, I would like some feedback on whether the new LC should be blocked until 15210 is fixed, or if we should move toward a new LC without the fix (and thus consider 15210 for the next version of the spec). If you have any comments, please send them by May 10.
