The best documentation I'm aware of right now is in the wifidog  
client source itself in fw_iptables.c, but even there it's scarce.

Also your conclusion is half-right.  Port 80 is redirected internally  
so that the wifidog client receives the request.  The other traffic  
is however not free, but simply rejected :-)
