I was thinking of adding multiplexing, but after discussing this with a
variety of people, I'm leaning towards leaving the protocol as is, and
letting authors implement their own multiplexing if they need it.
Other than that, I have no plans to add any features or make any further
major changes to the normative requirements in the protocol unless someone
brings up some serious problems.
I recommend rereading the spec and comparing it to any tests and
implementations before shipping, as there have been a number of subtle
changes over the past few months, such as dropping redirect support,
changing the default ports, changing how URLs are parsed, and the like.
I have some outstanding feedback on WebSockets, which I'll be getting to
in the coming days.
