I know it's bad in theory to do so, but we do distribute those flavours
of combined files on our download site for those who want their
MapServer-based WMS clients to talk to other canadian WMS servers, or to
ESRI WMS servers.  

If anyone needs them, the following files can be used as replacements
for the default 'epsg' file:

Base EPSG + a few custom canadian codes (42101, 42304, ...):

Same as above plus the list of ESRI codes that you sent earlier:

Note that we do not want to encourage use of those canadian and ESRI
EPSG codes in WMS servers, we just provide them to allow WMS clients to
talk to servers that use those codes.
