I think the registry is the set of RFCs that are "traceable ... to ... 
HTTP1/1."  (That is, there might not be any compact, compiled summary of
all the codes.)

(Note:  RFCs at Sunsite.dk have helpful forward links to later RFCs that update 
or supersede them.  For example, see http://sunsite.dk/RFC/rfc/rfc2616.html 
and how it is annotated with "updated by 2817.")

No, we're not a document.  :-)
