For the record, there are several independent proposals for how to use Web Sockets which should form part of the discussion wherever it takes place.

There we can talk of defining the default http/ws protocol binding which could be named as the Web Thing Protocol. We can have a separate document but this would look like "yet another standard" from my point of view.

However, it is still using the Mozilla way of doing things and not really using the W3C WoT Thing Description and defining a new "Thing Description". Moreover, I couldn't find a way to write issues or discuss things, thus the email. Is this a preliminary version until the Community Group is formed?
