Yes, but it's not just about signaling realtime. HTTP polling means
unnecesary traffic from client to server. In the other side, WebSocket
(bidirectional communication without polling) allow the server
communicating to the client when it has something to say.

Also I expect that WebSocket will be very common and extended the day
RTCweb becomes a reality.
