Note, there's a difference between being able to provide web sockets
and being required to provide web sockets. Is web sockets really
something that is required by most (80% case) app deployments?

There's nothing that prevents someone from adding it to a web
profile compliant server and yes that certainly helps avoid a
full EE server, but the web profile is not intended to be the new
lite EE platform. At least I didn't think so.
