[Proj] A template for documenting projections

I have spend a few hours documenting the Mercator projection in the hopes that it can serve as a template for the rest of the projections that still need to be documented.


This is just my first initial thoughts on how to document a projection.
I've divided the page into a few sections:

- A short introduction
- A table with a few key facts
- Plot(s)
- Usage/examples
- Underlying math
- References

I would like to hear your thought on this. Is this a sufficient level of documentation? Did I leave out something obvious (in general terms, not specific to the Mercator projection)? Do you like the general format?
