That sounds pretty good. Worth noting is that
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Internet_socket suggests that the term "Socket"
doesn't refer to tcp/ip, rather it refers to multiple protocols. You can
have a UDPSocket or an IPSocket just as easily as you could have a
TCPSocket. In this context, neither WebSocket nor SocketConnection really
present a naming problem.
