Subject [PATCH] on TRACE & RFC compliance
Date Wed, 29 Jun 2016 11:55:34 GMT
We had a couple of people complaining about the language around TRACE in 
the docs, which say disabling TRACE "makes your server noncompliant", a 
claim I found hard to support.
  
All methods but HEAD and GET are defined as OPTIONAL, so I'm not sure 
how this is true, am I missing something?

https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc2616#section-5.1.1
https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc7231#section-4.1

Is that choice of words just to scare people off?  IIRC there are some 
pretty strong opinions on this; attached is how I'd change it.
