RFC 2616 calls for two IANA registries, content-coding tokens
and transfer-coding tokens.

Content-coding (section 3.5) should contain
     gzip, compress, deflate, identity.
Transfer-coding (section 3.6) should contain
     chunked, identity, gzip, compress, deflate

Yes, some tokens (gzip, compress, identity) appear in both.
