Of course they're not going to be in a section on standard headers, 
because by definition user-defined ("x-") headers are not standard.  I'd 
consider X-YADIS-Location to be a user-defined extension header, though, 
and extension headers in HTTP responses are accounted for here:

"Unrecognized header fields SHOULD be ignored by the recipient and MUST be 
forwarded by transparent proxies."
