The HTTP headers available at the upgrade request will be available to 
CXF filters, in case of the OAuth2 client we'd have
Authorization: Bearer 123456
(or whatever the token type is)

and OAuth2 filter will take care of it, while the CORS filter will take 
care of the origin restrictions/etc. I'm also presuming it would be 
recommended to use a secure wss: protocol.

Does it sound right to you ?
