The relationship to spatialreference.org is one of being simply out-of-date. sr.org has not been updated in quite a while, and it needs a champion to come along and bring things forward.  sr.org gets its definitions from proj.4/GDAL as well as GeoTools. These have not been refreshed in at least a couple of years -- time for more than one EPSG database drop and the inclusion of datum shifting description in proj.4.

Hope this helps,
