Dear IANA,

  http://www.iana.org/assignments/http-parameters is out of sync with
RFC 2616 which established the registry. Under "HTTP Transfer Coding
Values" only "chunked" is listed, while RFC 2616 section 3.6 notes

  The Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA) acts as a registry for
  transfer-coding value tokens. Initially, the registry contains the
  following tokens: "chunked" (section 3.6.1), "identity" (section
  3.6.2), "gzip" (section 3.5), "compress" (section 3.5), and "deflate"
  (section 3.5).

Is there a reason why other transfer codings are not listed and if
not, could the registry be corrected to list the values in the RFC?

Thanks,
