We could restrict Access-Control-* to the server.

I actually thought of using Preflight-For-Method and Preflight-For-Headers  
instead of Access-Control-Request-Method and  
Access-Control-Request-Headers. Changing this would also allow using  
Access-Control-Methods and Access-Control-Headers on the server, making it  
all slightly more in line with each other.
