No, the Comet model does not and must not break the HTTP protocol, it's 
simply that the whole request lasts a long time. Reading input is as 
arbitrary as it was before, and there must be some collaboration between 
the client and the server: if the client sends data that the server does 
not want to read (or consider), then the application isn't going to work.

The client is obviously not limited to sending data once.
