It that still a requirement with JSR 299 (the spec formally know as
WebBeans) in the picture. Wouldn't that enable this anyway ?

The servlet 3.0 framework integration API is rather more general
purpose and only supplies lists of annotated classes or those
implementing a specific interface. I think it gives us what we need
without defining anything JAX-RS specific.

You are the second person to request that, see issue 67:

I recall that we didn't add a @OPTIONS in the first place as we
thought it wouldn't be used much but I can't see any harm in adding it
other than cluttering the API a bit. Anyone opposed to adding it ?
Either way I think we should avoid adding @TRACE or @CONNECT.
