[jsr356-experts] Buffer sizes

Currently WebSocketContainer defines buffer sizes using longs. I suspect
that this is to be consistent with the maximum message size defined by
RFC6455. Is a long here really realistic? The only way I can see of
sending a message of that size through our API is with a Writer or an
OutputStream. In those cases fragmenting at Integer.MAX_VALUE does not
seem unreasonable.

Therefore, I'd like to prose that the buffer sizes are defined as ints
rather than longs.
