The ToU I'm reading states this
"EPSG Facilities" means the Registry, the EPSG Dataset means the
Registry, the EPSG Dataset
(published through the Registry or through a downloadable MS-Access
file or through a set of SQL
scripts that enable a user to create an Oracle, MySQL, PostgreSQL or
other database and populate that database with the EPSG Dataset)
AFAIU, the "EPSG Facilities" include the "EPSG Dataset", hence the data.
I'm not trying to argue, rather to understand.
