I would too. But again I wonder how widespread client, server and proxy 
support is for OPTIONS.

With a Meta: request header as a qualifier for GET it'd, eg., be pretty 
straightforward to configure a completely vanilla Apache server to 
return metadata using only mod_rewrite. I think that doing the same 
with OPTIONS would be a lot more involved (tho' please correct me if 
I'm wrong).
