A Websocket connection is established by making a HTTP Upgrade request,
and the protocol is HTTP unless and until the connection is upgraded.
Websocket endpoints already have to be robust against XHR pre-flight
requests and other HTTP requests and "custom headers" would be an opt-
in feature anyway, so it's not obvious that there would be any problem.
