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).
