I think that is the most obvious solution, yes. And no, I do not think
you can support less HTTP for Websockets than what you need for minimal
web servers (but a minimal web server does not do much beyond message
parsing, you also do not need much more to support Websockets); either
way, this should not be a problem because you can already reference any
Websocket endpoint with <img> and XMLHttpRequest and whatever else, so
it's unlikely there are notable risks there.
