The following errata report has been submitted for RFC6455,
"The WebSocket Protocol".

You may review the report below and at:

Type: Technical
Reported by: Jefferson Carpenter <jeffersoncarpenter2@gmail.com>

Section: 7.4.1

Original Text
1001 indicates that an endpoint is "going away", such as a server
      going down or a browser having navigated away from a page.

Corrected Text

This status code apparently covers two entirely different situations: a server going down, and a browser having navigated away.  What is meant by "going away", why can't these be 2 different status codes?  That info should be present in the RFC text.

This erratum is currently posted as "Reported". If necessary, please
use "Reply All" to discuss whether it should be verified or
rejected. When a decision is reached, the verifying party  
can log in to change the status and edit the report, if necessary.
