I'd prefer not to trust OPTIONS at all, and perhaps rename the existing option or add something like http-methods.force or http-methods.thorough to test a long hardcoded base list of methods like you suggest. The current "retest" option doesn't really retest the methods, it simply performs a more thorough test based on the original OPTIONS response (which, as you point out, could be inaccurate).
