Hi there, actually those headers are added by the W3C its a standard for the web. Go see the github of W3C ;)

I couldn't find the 'header' related content on W3C's github (may have missed it ) unfortunately, but I took a short class on what a header is and looked at Mozilla's documentation for headers. Thank you!

yes, it's a bit complicated to find them because W3C guys are very technical, there is a lot to read. Fortunately Mozilla as you said they simplified them as a gist.
I share this like for others to see: developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/W...

But for being aware of changes and knowing those policies as you mentioned above, W3C has the detailed view of how and the reasons why certain things exist and what policies are applied or drafted.

Here is a view of how a specification from W3C is laid out, (brace yourself): w3.org/TR/CSP2/
