Consider "osgb" as an authority

Description

The Ordnance survey of Great Britain provides some sample GML file whose "srsName" attribute is "osgb:BNG" :

http://www.ordnancesurvey.co.uk/oswebsite/products/osmastermap/layers/topography/sample.html - http://www.ordnancesurvey.co.uk/oswebsite/products/osmastermap/layers/topography/sample.html

It would be nice to reckognize the osgb a a valid authority <img class="emoticon" src="https://jira.codehaus.org/images/icons/emoticons/wink.gif" height="16" width="16" align="absmiddle" alt="" border="0"/> and to add this SRS, which is equivalent to epsg:27700 :

Is &quot;osgb:BNG&quot; the full name, or do we have something else after (&quot;osgb:BNG:something&quot?

Also, do we have somewhere a list of names that may appear in the &quot;osgb&quot; name space, or is &quot;BNG&quot; the only official name?

The files I have have only what I&#39;ve mentionned, e.g. :

&lt;gmloint srsName=&#39;osgb:BNG&#39;&gt;&lt;gml:coordinates&gt;278219.080,187556.600&lt;/gml:coordinates&gt;&lt;/gmloint&gt;

Not sure there are many other SRSes than the BNG (British Natioanl Grid) one...

Not a bug but a RFE, too old and nobody bothered.

Killing it.
