That looks like the list of values for the MIME 
Content-Transfer-Encoding header (which HTTP/1.1 does not use; see 
section 19.4.5 of RFC 2616).

I think you have the wrong registry.  Looking at under "H", I think the "Hypertext 
Transfer Protocol (HTTP) Parameters" one is the one you want.  The 
linked text "Trasnfer-Coding Values" [sic; I bet this typo is why you 
couldn't find it] points to which has gzip, etc.
