Not incomplete at all.  The definitive resource for this information is 
the HTTP RFC, available at  http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc2616.txt (from 
http://www.w3.org/Protocols/Specs.html).  This spec has everything you 
want to know about HTTP.  For the headers, go directly to section 14.

(here is the introductory paragraph:)
Fielding, et al.            Standards Track                    [Page 99]
RFC 2616                        HTTP/1.1                       June 1999

14 Header Field Definitions

    This section defines the syntax and semantics of all standard
    HTTP/1.1 header fields. For entity-header fields, both sender and
    recipient refer to either the client or the server, depending on who
    sends and who receives the entity.
