[whatwg] Issues with Web Sockets API

Cellular phone signal strength bars are not implemented on top of Web
Sockets so this cannot make a use case. This is rather a hardware thing.
On the other hand, I concur that a network queue overflow should be handled
differently than an out-of-memory condition. For example, if you have an
infinite enumerator sending data to memory à la chargen service, an overflow
failure is guaranteed and the programmer will have to do something about it;
on the other hand, if the same enumerator sends data to a network, the
failure will be random, depending on enumerator speed, network throughput
and receiver capabilities.
I think that the output buffer should not grow unbounded and the sending
worker should be stopped while the buffer is full.
