Depends what you mean by "accept"... tcp accept, no, because you have to 
make the tcp connection to get the headers.

Accept to perform the ws upgrade... sure...

     /**< called when the handshake has
      * been received and parsed from the client, but the response is
      * not sent yet.  Return non-zero to disallow the connection.
      * user is a pointer to the connection user space allocation,
      * in is the requested protocol name
      * In your handler you can use the public APIs
      * lws_hdr_total_length() / lws_hdr_copy() to access all of the
      * headers using the header enums lws_token_indexes from
      * libwebsockets.h to check for and read the supported header
      * presence and content before deciding to allow the handshake
      * to proceed or to kill the connection. */
