I don't think so. The epsg file gives all the definitions of ids within 
the epsg domain. The esri file gives all the definitions of ids within 
the esri domain.  The fact that the esri and epsg domains overlap does 
not make the individual domains any less distinct.

The ugrly compromise would be to just pretend the esri domain does not 
exist at all and dump their spare ids into the epsg file. Also dump all 
the half-assed temporary ids in there too, like the canadian lambert 
and the bc albers ids.  The way it would be one stop shopping, no line, 
no waiting.
