FYI there is one small issue still.  The resulting Allow: <null>
response to denied TRACE request.  TRACE doesn't go through the
normal processing, so methods aren't added.  And since TRACE is
denied, it's removed too.

Result - we should use UNKNOWN_METHOD rather than METHOD_NOT_ALLOWED
since the later requires an Allow: header.  And, omit empty Allow:
