Proposal: i105 Classification for Allow header

From: Mark Nottingham <mnot@mnot.net>
Date: Mon, 3 Mar 2008 13:07:42 +1100
Message-Id: <D15BCB39-FB52-45C8-976E-6D66B3AC8412@mnot.net>
To: HTTP Working Group <ietf-http-wg@w3.org>

<http://www3.tools.ietf.org/wg/httpbis/trac/ticket/105>

Proposal:

Change the classification of Allow to a response header, removing the  
following text;

   The Allow header field MAY be provided with a PUT request to  
recommend the methods to be supported by the new or modified resource.  
The server is not required to support these methods and SHOULD include  
an Allow header in the response giving the actual supported methods.

(or moving to an appendix and marking as deprecated behaviour)
