Subject: Re: [emergency] Re: Circle and Polygon

Art -

You still appear to be missing the point. We can leave CAP and EDXL with
WGS 84 as the default (but not mandatory!) so that all existing
implementations work and the level of "simplicity" being sought is
maintained. We are suggesting optional elements that would allow folks to
use other than WGS 84 as the only CRS. This provides implementation
flexibility and allows different regions in the world to implement as they
see fit for their region.
