Actually, when the MetaCRS list started, one of its goals was to create
a test suite that could be used by any map projection library. We now
have the Geospatial integrity of geoscience software (GIGS) tests for
such purpose (http://www.iogp.org/Geomatics/#gigs), but a question could
be whether there is interest in making those tests more readily runnable.

I noticed that some activity happen on Proj4J outside this group, on at
least one fork created by a user on GitHub.

Why not referencing the only official source instead, which is
http://epsg-registry.org/ ? The non-conform definitions (because of
difference in axis order and units of measurements) contribute to the
confusion. If the intend is to be able to give a direct link to a
specific EPSG code, this can also be done with the official registry
with URL like below:
