What does "tcp status" mean to you?  In the usual case it's over tls, 
the problem that caused the close can have happened at tls layer, ws 
framing layer, ws compression layer, "user code" / protocol layer... in 
the case of ws-over-h2 / rfc8441, the lifecycle of the stream is 
unrelated to the lifecycle of the tcp connection since many stream may 
mux over a single tcp connection.  None of those necessarily really 
resolve to some "tcp status" to explain what happened.

You're trying to produce metrics for what happened, or something else?
