I am aware that there always might be many values for a single EPSG 
code. I also don't want to debate in how far the values of the "ETRS89 
(WGS84) to OSGB36/ODN Helmert transformation", on p. 33 of [1], can be 
considered as "standard values". My simple (slightly rephrased) question 

ogr2ogr -s_srs epsg:27700 # expands to something
cs2cs -v +init=epsg:27700 # expands to something else

Is this expected behaviour?
