What restrictions are placed on the header by ASICs?

What restrictions does mining hardware place on the Bitcoin block header?

Can you give mining hardware any 80 byte header and it will search it (updating the 4 nonce bytes and maybe the timestamp)?

Does the version field have to be positive?

Does the difficulty target have to be a reasonable value?

Does the previous hash have to have at least 32 zeros?

Does the merkle root have to encode at least a coinbase for the extraNonce?
