I'm having trouble determining what I might put in the body of a response to an
OPTIONS request? are there conventions? standards? What do you put? do you just provide a list of other METHODS? should you give the representation?

Here's a link to page 98. "There are no accepted standards."
The methods are part of the
ALLOW header. Not the body of the response.
