I can see benefits of both approaches.

If the fd can be passed, then that will give maximum performance.
However, it is also likely that httpd will be run on a different
system, so the proxy mode will be needed.

Also, eventually there might be a role for apache to actually examine
websocket frames to add value to them - eg implement extension for
mux, ssl, compression etc.
