I agree and AFAICT Proj does have a sensible solution

  if( !pj_errno)
     OK - Do my thing
   } else {

IMHO What we need to have is a 'rendering engine' that does the 
'sensible thing' for HANDLE_ERROR_CONDITION

So 'all' we need todo is hash out just what the 'sensible thing' is for
those cases that we know 'apriori' will fail.  :-)
