I somewhat kind of doubt it since, as Frank says, the syntax for some of the
more esoteric projections may be non trivial. And under all circumstances
there will be a lot of special cases (e.g. the zone specifier for utm). For
each individual projection I agree that it may not be a big thing to
implement syntax checking - but there is a lot of projections, and one would
need to understand the specifics of all of them. Actually, as far as I can
see, this amounts to writing "a significant fraction of N" syntax checkers
for the N projections in the library.

If you can see simpler ways to do it, I think you should flesh it out in
code and post a patch: Others may want to join the effort once you have
actually shown how easy it is.
