Proposed patch at 
<http://trac.tools.ietf.org/wg/httpbis/trac/attachment/ticket/545/545.diff>; 
includes some re-shuffling of paragraphs:

This changes the text below the table to:

    ...

    Additional methods, outside the scope of this specification, have
    been standardized for use in HTTP.  All such methods ought to be
    registered within the HTTP Method Registry (defined in Section 8.1).

    All general-purpose servers MUST support the methods GET and HEAD.

    All other methods are OPTIONAL; when implemented, a server MUST
    implement these methods according to the semantics defined for them
    in their relevant specifications (as listed in the HTTP Method
    Registry).

    ...


Best regards, Julian
