DataStore API introduces a new and rich API to work with data store which is targetedt mainly at complex data sources that can contain more than one feature type into a single store.
Most of the raster data sources are quite simple, so they would share most of the boilerplate code: we need to create that boilerplate code into one abstract object.
Basically, subclasses should only care about the real grid coverage loading, so idally they should only have to override a
GridCoverage getGridCoverages(Query q) method (some raster data formats allow for more than one raster into the file).

No need for that superclass, since we are now using the GridCoverageExchange architecture in place of the data stores
