There's Content-Type (standard HTTP header in both directions), and there's
_rev (or previous _rev). The latter can be in the URL for a PUT, and perhaps
a header for a GET. If revisions were a document hash, there's the standard
Content-MD5 header, or the (less standard) Content-SHA1 header.

What else am I missing?
