You can extend your local proj.4 'epsg' translation file as you wish.
However, the original EPSG database is not under our control so if you
want the county projections added to the core EPSG database you will need
to contact the OGP Surveying and Positioning Committee.


I am not keen on adding non-EPSG approved codes into the PROJ.4 epsg
translation file.
