I don't have anyything definite on this, but I suspect it is in
reference to using bidirectional HTTP for MUD clients.  There's a
semi-useful discussion of the area rooted at:



Ahh, found it!  See:  


The Purpose

Select a working subset of HTML that incorporates easily into a MUD
stream Allow a seamless integration into normal servers so that
users of an IMP-enabled client notice only the tremendous special
features and not the detection process while users of other clients
are not affected at all.

I also observe the utter lack of a reference implementation.
