Subject: [Proj] Having a CRS added in the common libraries

Dear all 

I am new to both lists (proj and metacrs) so my apologies for cross-posting, I am not quite sure where my question belongs.

I am working in the beautiful country of Kyrgyzstan, which happens to have developed a new national geodetic framework. One of the outputs is a coordinate system (Kyrg06), divided in 5 zones.

As far as I know, this coordinate system is not yet available in any common library / software and is neither in the EPSG list. 

Is there any standard process to get a sort of international recognition? This system has been approved by the government and thus has a legal validity in this country. But it will always be difficult to convince people to use it as long as it's not readily available in the common software (and thus in the underlying libraries). As a result, many GIS users end up working with UTM or other not-so-optimal.

Thanks a lot in advance for your hints and advice on this matter

"Si les contacts avec les étrangers lui étaient permis, [le citoyen ordinaire] découvrirait que ce sont des créatures semblables à lui-même et que la plus grande partie de ce qu'on lui a raconté d'eux est fausse. Le monde fermé, scellé, dans lequel il vit, serait brisé, et la crainte, la haine, la certitude de son bon droit, desquelles dépend sa morale, pourraient disparaître" -- George Orwell ("1984")
