I wouldn't guarantee that it's a full set, but these are the ones used
in the EPSG file.
$ cat epsg | grep -v '^#' | tr ' ' '\n' | grep '^\+' | \
cut -f1 -d'=' | sort | uniq

A short sentence/paragraph on each of the above would be nice.
As Markus suggested, the (FW/OSGeo) proj4 wiki is a nice place to work
on collaborative documents.
I made a start at naming the above, if others could please complete...
There you will find nice things like:
== Documentation ==
* General Parameter Notes
* Projections List page on the GeoTIFF site includes information on how
to describe many common projections with PROJ.4 command arguments.
> The idea behind using libraries is that such work that can
> be done only once... also would be done only once.
