I have only looked very briefly at this, so I may be missing something.

Have you considered using the WebSocket continuation opcode instead of
encoding the more flag into ZWS? That way all ZMTP meta-data can be
handled outside the WebSocket payload, and the latter will be an exact
copy of the ZMTP body.
