[jax-rs-spec users] [jsr339-experts] OPTIONS Response: HTTP Allow only ?

According to [1], response to OPTIONS 'SHOULD' also provide a body
(albeit) in the unspecified format, as opposed to setting a well-known
HTTP Allow header.

Are implementations expected to provide a body, in addition to HTTP
Allow header ?

Thanks, Sergey
