This is the summary grammar. If you actually read the spec you'll see
there are 3 layers (framing, connection, content). Please do read the
spec, and confirm that it's accurate. We can fine-tune the names and
concepts at the unconf, I've deliberately stayed away from 0MQ
concepts such as socket. "Patterns" or "profiles" (like RestMS) might
be better than "content". We can also discuss whether it's worth
making separate specs for the content types. I'm hesitant to ask
implementors to read and mentally arrange 4 2-page specs when one
5-page spec says it all.
