Not at the moment because when I tried adding them they did nothing to
improve performance of the Autobahn tests. They didn't hinder it either.
If you have a test case that demonstrates a use case where they help
then I'd be prepared to consider adding them. As I recall, the patch is
pretty simple.

I saw that. I've been focussing on clearing the 7.0.x bug backlog ready
for a release (that includes WebSocket) and was planning to look at the
chat example once the backlog was clear. I think there are just two bugs
left at the moment so I should get there soon.
