Well there's two parts to it: the protocol, and the API. If there's an 
existing protocol for this and the browser vendors are interested in 
implementing it, I see no reason why we couldn't support this alongside 
the current text/event-stream-based API in the HTML standard, either as 
part of the same API or as a separate API (like WebSockets).

If it needs a new protocol, then that should probably be addressed first.
