[access-control] Allowing HEAD

To: "WebApps WG" <public-webapps@w3.org>
Message-ID: <op.uilyg1x464w2qv@annevk-t60.oslo.opera.com>

Pros:

* Doing the same for HEAD and GET is saner than requiring a preflight for  
HEAD.

* Makes cross-site HEAD easier.


Cons:

* Might complicate re-introduction of <?access-control?> or equivalent. As  
the headers could say allow while the body says not allow.


Given that it's probably worth allowing HEAD requests. I will make that  
change in the next few days.
