Abstract

Section 11.5 of [RFC6455] sets up a WebSocket Subprotocol Name Registry at IANA and directs IANA to use First Come First Serve registration procedures as set out in [RFC5226]. The reuse of this registry by other protocols has indicated that some clarification of the instructions to IANA would be useful.
