In this HyBi thread:

http://www.ietf.org/mail-archive/web/hybi/current/msg06951.html

Folks are arguing that the WebSocket protocol should support HTTP
redirects during the handshake and that dealing with the security
consequences of redirects should be dealt with at the API layer.
If/when that occurs, we should update the API layer to deal with the
security consequences of the WebSocket protocol following HTTP
redirects, preferably by aborting any WebSocket connections that the
server attempts to redirect.
