Again, the big problem has been the use of the term Gauss-Kruger in referring
to either a computational method and to a coordinate system.  Using GK to
refer to a coordinate system leads to confusion as shown in previous entrys
on this thread.

I suggest that except for UTM, which is well defined, other usages be detailed
as to scale factors,  central meridians, rather than rely on vague references
to GK coordinate systems.
