Max-Forwards vs extension methods

Description

http://greenbytes.de/tech/webdav/draft-ietf-httpbis-p2-semantics-09.html#rfc.section.9.5:

"The Max-Forwards header field MAY be ignored for all other methods defined by this specification and for any extension methods for which it is not explicitly referred to as part of that method definition."

This seems to suggest that we should require extension method definitions to define the Max-Forwards behavior (affect on registry).

Alternatively, remove this and clarify it's for OPTIONS and TRACE only.

I believe allowing new methods to use this isn't going to work in practice. So better just drop the sentence indicating this could work.

Agreement in Maastricht that it's only practical on OPTIONS and TRACE
