RFC 6455, "The WebSocket Protocol", December 2011

Source of RFC: hybi (app)

Errata ID: 4919

Status: Reported
Type: Technical

Reported By: Jefferson Carpenter
Date Reported: 2017-01-28

Section 7.4.1 says:

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

It should say:

(unsure)

Notes:

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.
